Have a TREEmendous Arbor Day and plant a free tree
Residents are invited to pick up a free Colorado blue spruce or Norway spruce tree seedling at the Eagle Pointe Recreation Center (6060 E. Parkway Dr.) or Bison Ridge Recreation Center (13905 E. 112th Ave.) on Friday, April 19 from noon to 5 p.m. Seedlings will be available on a first come, first served basis until they are gone. The seedlings are packaged with 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 28th consecutive year in 2019. City council has declared the third Friday in April as Arbor Day in Commerce City.
