In celebration of Arbor Day and Earth Day, we're challenging you to get out and check out some of our most TREEmendous trees in Wheat Ridge! We've compiled a list of 17 spectacular trees, and provided the names, locations, and details about each. More trees will be added soon, so check back for more information!
As you make your way around to each tree, be sure to check them off the list! Then, complete our Tree Challenge Prize Entry Form for your chance to win a FREE tree! (your choice of an outdoor tree to plant in your yard or an indoor, houseplant tree) We'll be doing two separate drawings, one for kids, one for adults. So be sure to complete an entry form for each person!
Each tree on the list will be clearly marked on-site so you'll know you've found the right one!

Wheat Ridge has been a Tree City USA for more than 40 years!
The Tree City USA program has been greening up cities and towns across America since 1976. It is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees.
A city achieves Tree City USA status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.
