Community Canopy Program

Through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation's Community Canopy program, 1,000 trees will be provided to residents of Fort Collins for $25 each. 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.

How It Works#

How It Works
  • Use the online tool to determine the location in your yard to plant your new tree for maximum savings on your energy bill. This tool will also estimate the annual savings that will result from the tree over time and will also allow you to place your reservation.
  • Residents may reserve three trees per household and are expected to plant them in the location provided by the online tool, as well as provide ongoing care. 
  • The Community Canopy Program reservation site will remain active until all 1,000 trees are reserved. 
  • The 2-4 foot trees will be available at a pickup event on Saturday, September 10 from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. for those who have made tree reservations. Pickup times will be assigned when purchasing your tree.
  • Unclaimed trees will be donated, if not claimed by September 16, 2022.
