Glenwood Springs’ parks system is continually growing and trees are a great way to increase the beauty of our city and provide countless benefits to this community. Your tax-deductible contribution will be used to purchase trees to be planted in the parks system and personnel will care for the trees. Although we accept requests year-round, we encourage the planting of trees in the spring or fall to give the trees the best chance to survive. Through communication between Parks staff and the contributor, an approved species will be chosen based on the desired planting site. Your bronze plaque will be mounted in concrete at the base of the tree. Contributors are always welcome to attend the tree planting.
