The Denver Parks and Recreation Forestry Office is the city agency responsible for trees and shrubs in public parks, parkways and around government buildings. Trees are an extremely valuable resource that not only provides attractive landscapes, but also replenishes oxygen in the atmosphere, cools us with shade in the summer and helps clean the air. Denver’s publicly owned street trees are under regulation of the City Forester, but their maintenance responsibility is shared across the city by adjacent landowners. It is important to remember that permits are required prior to the removal or planting of any street trees. You may request a permit by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including a description of the work to be done.
