2018 Tree Program

Post Date:04/01/2018

There are still a limited number of trees available! Check the Tree Species page to see which trees are still available, then call 303-795- 3766 to confirm your order prior to sending payment.

To place a tree order, complete the 2018 Tree Program Order Form and return it with a check payable to City of Littleton. The trees are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Call 303-795-3766 for more information.

Most of the trees offered are considered low or low-moderate water-demand trees, which require minimal supplemental watering, once established. Trees requiring more water should be planted in areas with irrigation. When choosing a tree, participants should consider mature heights and widths for specific planting locations. Participants must make arrangements to pick up and plant their own trees and are responsible for all maintenance, pruning, and watering. The trees must be picked up on Saturday, April 21 between 8 a.m. and noon at the city’s Belleview Service Center at 1800 West Belleview Avenue. Detailed tree planting instructions will be provided and volunteers will plant trees for those who are physically unable.

The City of Littleton is celebrating Arbor Day by continuing its annual tree planting program with 20 species of trees available this year. The goal of the program is to increase the canopy area and diversity of the urban forest. On Saturday April 21, city staff and volunteers will distribute 245 trees. For those interested in participating, bare root trees will cost $40 and #7 container trees will cost $50. These trees must be planted within the Littleton city limits.

All newly-planted trees require regular watering, applied in all seasons, for three to four years after planting. Most of the trees offered are considered low or low-moderate water-demand trees which require minimal supplemental watering, once established. Trees requiring more water should be planted in areas with irrigation. Tree descriptions are available on the city website, www.littletongov.org. Participants should consider mature heights and widths when choosing species for specific planting locations.
