Tree Donations

Property owners often find that they have trees on their property that have outgrown their planting site or are simply in the way of new development. Frequently these trees are in excellent shape, and still have the potential for decades of new growth. The City of Westminster Forestry Section will consider these trees for donation to City Parks and other public properties if the property owner would rather not have the trees destroyed. Here are a few items that must be considered when a tree is evaluated for donation:

  • tree must be in good-to-excellent health to be successfully transplanted by hand or with a tree spade;
  • trunk of the tree (measured 12 inches above ground level) cannot exceed 12 inches in diameter;
  • tree must be accessible by appropriate machinery; and
  • underground utilities can prevent tree donations when they are found to be within the dig area.

If you would like to have your potential tree donation evaluated by the city forester, please call 303-658-2559.
