Contact Information

The City of Fort Collins Forestry Division will begin a large-scale tree pruning and replacement project on S. College Ave. on Saturday, March 14.

Southbound College Ave. will be closed between Mulberry St. and Pitkin St. from 6 a.m.-5 p.m. while work takes place. Alternate routes of transportation are recommended during this time.

Routine pruning and tree replacements are important to maintain public safety, as well as the health of the urban forest. 154 trees will be pruned along S. College Ave. during this project. Additionally, two trees will be removed due to public safety concerns. One tree removal will occur between Mulberry St. and Myrtle St., while the other will take place between W. Laurel St. and Old Main Dr. at Colorado State University. These trees will be replaced later this spring.

The work set to take place is dependent on favorable conditions; variances may occur due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
