Community Canopy Program

 

Through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation's Community Canopy program, the City of Fort Collins Forestry Division provided 200 trees to residents of Fort Collins for $25 each in 2019. These trees will help homeowners in our community lower energy costs, filter air and water, reduce stormwater runoff, slow climate change, and green our neighborhoods.

Stay tuned for information on the 2020 program. 

Tree Benefits

Trees provide many benefits, such as: 

  • Provide shade and reduce energy costs. 
  • Reduce our Carbon footprint.
  • Improve air quality.
  • Intercept stormwater runoff.
  • Increase our property values.
  • Increase quality of life, aesthetics, and economic health.
