                                   communities located throughout Colorado. Ninety-three
                                   communities were certified in 2005 as qualifying for Tree
                                   City USA this represents over 75% of Colorado’s
                                   population. Benefits of being a Tree City USA are many.
                                   It promotes healthy community development, generates
                                   awareness on the economic, social, and environmental
                                   importance
                                   of urban
                                   forests and
                                   highlights
                                   communities
                                   that have
benefited from their involvement in the program.

Tree City communities, made available to
each legislator at the State Capitol, and sent to
