Your Resource For Planting & Growing The Best Trees For Our Area

Here in the foothills west of Denver, CO we're officially in zone 4 and between 7000’ and 9000’ in elevation. That makes for highly variable conditions from property to property, and even microclimates within the same property. For example, the south side of a home can have conditions like zone 5 while on the north side it's closer to zone 3.

As a result, we have a lot of different trees growing in our area. Below you'll see some of the most common trees in the Denver foothills.

If you're looking for suggestions on which trees to plant in your yard, the ones shown here are good options, although it's difficult to say with certainty that the trees shown here are the best ones for your property. While the trees below are suitable for most properties in our area, consider any microclimates on your property before planting.

Also, keep in mind that deer and elk are everywhere, and even the occasional moose - and they love to eat and rub deciduous plants, including young trees. So be sure to protect any newly-planted trees (or put up a fence).
