Centennial program encourages tree planting

Posted

Centennial residents can purchase trees at a discounted price through the city's pilot tree program.

Five types of trees will be available — Kentucky coffeetree, autumn brilliance serviceberry, summer charm lilac, swamp white oak and Turkish filbert/hazelnut. Trees offered through the program will have a trunk diameter of 1 to 1 1/2 inches and range in height from 5-12 feet, with none weighing more than 70 pounds.

All trees must be planted on residential private property in the city, with a limit of one tree per household. The trees are not warrantied, although they are grown specifically for the climate and soil conditions found in most parts of Colorado and generally have a high survival rate. 

The Centennial tree program encourages tree planting, helps ensure tree diversity, beautifies our neighborhoods, shades homes to help conserve energy and promotes water conservation through the selection of specific tree species.

Availability is limited. For information and to apply, go to www.centennialco.gov/Resident-Services/tree-program.aspx.
