Order Your Trees by December 1, 2008

"Trees Across Arvada" offers you the opportunity to purchase low cost shade trees. The trees, mostly low to moderately low water demand varieties are 8-12 feet tall and 1-1 1/4 inches in diameter. 

"Trees Across Arvada" is a program of the Colorado Tree Coalition, a nonprofit statewide organization dedicated to preservinq, and enhancing Colorado's cornrnunltv forests,.

Trees help us by:

cooling our neighborhoods in summer with shade and transpiration; cieaning the air of pollution by catching particulates on their leaves; turning carbon dioxide into oxygen for us to breathe; slowing downstorm drainage flooding; reducing water consumption of plants protected by their shade; lowering summer utility bills by shading; adding value to our property; and planting trees improves the quality of life.

Tree orders are due by December 1,2008; half payment by January 7,2009; and final payment by April 1, 2009. Unfortunately, orders cannot be cancelled after January 7, 2009, when we finalize the numbers with the nurseries. Tree distribution is mid-April at Majestic View Nature Center, 70th and Garrison.

The tree list for 2009 includes trees with color in the summer and fall, flowers in the spring and summer, and some old reliable favorites. The 12 choices include small and large trees, some bareroot, and some balled and burlaped.

Thank you for your interest in making your home and Arvada a cooler and greener place!

Please call 303-421-3206 or email us at arvadatrees@comcast.net if you have questions.

P.S. These trees are NOT guaranteed because the cost is so low. With similar programs, we had a 90-95% survival rate the first year and about75% after four years.
