Plan[t] for the Future.#
- The City of Fort Collins has over 2,000 vacant tree sites: trees that once existed but haven’t been replaced over the years.
- Ash trees make up 33% of our City’s canopy with over 7,000 in the City’s inventory, and they are in danger. The emerald ash borer (EAB) is a highly-destructive wood boring beetle that’s made its way to Colorado. To keep our tree canopy lush and healthy, join us and plant a tree resistant to the EAB.
The City of Fort Collins Forestry teams maintains more than 54,000 trees along streets and in parks, cemeteries, golf courses and other City facilities or property. Our commitment is to sustain a safe, healthy and attractive urban forest. Your support makes a green and great difference.
