Damaged Trees, Broken Branches, and Disposal:
- Property owners are responsible for cleanup of debris from trees as well as their pruning needs on private property and from trees within the public right-of-way adjacent to their property.
- If a tree limb is broken on a tree within a public right of way, or you have general questions about the condition of a public right of way tree, please contact Denver Forestry for assistance email@example.com
- For trees on private property, citizens can visit www.denvergov.org/forestry for a list of licensed and insured tree care contractors.
- If emergency removal of a fallen tree or tree branch is needed to clear a street, the city can assist through an established on-call contract; however the cost of the work will be billed to the responsible property owner.
- Denver Public Works Solid Waste Management collects a limited amount of branches as part of its regular trash collection service.
- Tie loose branches in bundles no longer than 4 feet in length and in bundles weighing no more than 50 pounds. No branches may exceed 4 inches in diameter. A maximum of 10 branch bundles per household will be collected per scheduled Extra Trash service collection (every 4 weeks).
- Denver residents can also drop off branches at the Cherry Creek Recycling Drop-off center located near East Cherry Creek South Drive and South Quebec Street. Hours of operation can be found on the city's website.
