Tree City USA

In May 2016, Northglenn was named a Tree City USA for the 26th time.

The Tree City USA program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, provides direction, technical assistance, public attention, and national recognition for urban and community forestry programs in thousands of towns and cities that more than 120 million Americans call home.

Plant Your Own Tree

When you are ready to plant new trees and shrubs on your property, please consider using drought-tolerant and or native species. Once established, these tree species are better able to survive Colorado's dry high plains climate and periodic drought conditions. It is also important to consider how large the trees will be at maturity. Each tree variety will have certain size and shape characteristics. Trees must be given enough space to grow to their adult size in order for them to thrive.

When selecting trees, avoid trees with wounds, bruises, incorrect pruning cuts or insect injuries on the trunk. Be sure the root ball is sound and an adequate size for the tree. Healthy tree roots should be at or near the surface of the container.
