In 2016, the Grand Junction Forestry Department and Forestry Advisory board started a Community Tree Planting program, picking one location a year to invite the community to join them for a day of giving back. In 2016, we planted over 70 trees up in the center medians of the Redlands Ridges, enhancing the scenic drive along the main road. 2017 brought a new project, where the community joined in helping enhance the newly developed landscape at the Las Colonias Amphitheater by planting 130 trees on property grounds.
If you would like to nominate an area for a Community Tree Planting project, please fill out the required application (PDF) and submit it to our Forestry Department for consideration. This nomination is open to all community members residing in Grand Junction City Limits.
