Have a TREEmendous Arbor Day and plant a tree for FREE

Post Date:04/16/2018 3:55 PM

Commerce City residents are invited to pick up a free Colorado blue spruce or white pine tree seedling at the Eagle Pointe Recreation Center (6060 E. Parkway Dr.) on Friday, April 20 from noon to 5 p.m. Seedlings are available on a first-come, first-served basis and include instructions on how to store, care for, and plant them.

Trees provide oxygen, shade and give life to neighborhoods while also absorbing storm water and pollutants to benefit the environment. Commerce City has been recognized as a “Tree City USA” by the National Arbor Day Foundation for the 27th consecutive year in 2018. City Council has declared the third Friday in April as Arbor Day in Commerce City.

Contact Tony Jaramillo, parks capital projects manager, at 303-289-8166 with any questions about the program.
