2020 Water-Wise ProSeries: The Value of Trees 

Trees are a standard for our community’s quality of life. This year’s Water Smart Landscape ProSeries will review the importance of trees in Colorado Springs and their careful choice and management.

We’ll highlight the importance of education and care towards long-lasting tree growth, and how we are using the COS:150 Tree Challenge as a catalyst to build towards a more comprehensive tree program for Colorado Springs. You'll also learn the latest BMP's for urban tree success and how City Forestry supports our urban forest assets. 

Our FREE program includes:

  • Colorado Springs’ Trees: Past, Present and Future - Catherine Moravec, Colorado Springs Utilities 
  • BMPS for Urban Tree Success - Dr. Alison O’Connor, Colorado State University Extension 
  • Getting to Know Your City Forestry - Dennis Will, Colorado Springs City Forestry
  • Fruit Trees for Front Range Communities- Andy Hough, Hidden Mesa Orchard, Douglas County
