Over the past 30+ years, the Denver Digs Trees program has provided more than 51,000 trees to Denver residents, helping to enhance quality of life in our city.Trees beautify our neighborhoods, enhance property values, lower utility costs, improve air and water quality, and much more!
For each tree you request, you MUST identify whether it is a 'Street Tree' or a "Yard Tree.' You may apply for 'Street Trees, 'Yard Trees,' or both!
3 Steps to Apply:
STEP 1: Measure Your Property & Have Utilities Marked
Carefully follow these important spacing requirements to determine the appropriate number and placement of tree(s).
- Plant at least 30 feet away from the curb at an intersection
- Plant at least 20 feet away from streetlights and stop signs
STEP 2: Submit a Tree Application
Deadline: Fri. February 15* - Apply early for best selection!
*Or until species sell out. Availability is limited. Please note: the sooner we receive your application and payment, the better chance you'll have of getting your first choice of tree(s).
STEP 3: Pick Up Your Tree(s) on Distribution Day
Tree Distribution Day: Sat. April 27 - Mark your calendar!
In early April, you'll receive a letter to confirm which tree(s) you've been approved for and where to pick up your tree(s) between 8:00-10:30am.
