The Benefits of Colorado Trees

Trees are invaluable for the many direct and indirect benefits we derive from them, they help to:

  • Provide food and shelter for wildlife
  • Protect snow pack and watersheds
  • Help purify our lakes and streams
  • Hold soil in place to prevent erosion
  • Protect livestock from inclement weather
  • Act as living snow fences, keeping critical roadways passable
  • Reduce energy consumption by deflecting cold winter winds and providing shade on summer days.
  • Turn drab vistas into beautiful landscapes with their natural forms and colors
