We are very excited to announce that in 2013 we began a tree survey at Fairmount, recording species, size and location; it will take years to survey every tree, but as we do we will post the information here. We are working to add better mapping and more information all the time so check back regularly for updates.

Special thanks to the Colorado Tree Coalition, Front Range Urban Forestry Council and the Colorado State Forest Service for helping with the survey and aBIG thanks to Bill Cassel with Denver Forestry, for his help leading the project.

Through a generous grant from the Colorado Tree Coalition, we have been able to label the trees surveyed; labeled trees are listed below.
