Office of the City Forester

Denver’s street trees are under regulation of the City Forester, but their maintenance is a responsibility shared by adjacent property owners. Permits are required prior to the removal or planting of any street trees. Request a permit by sending an email to forestry@denvergov.org including a description of the work to be done.

The Office of the City Forester is responsible for the direct maintenance of public trees within parks and designated parkways, along with oversight of privately maintained trees per Municipal Code, Chapter 57, and the overall quality of Denver’s urban tree canopy
