For storm related tree limb drop off, the Parks, Recreation & Open Space department has opened a drop-off site - daily through May 1 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Lowry Park, 1001 Dayton St. Only storm damage/tree limbs will be accepted (no other debris or trash). For questions regarding tree limb drop off please call Forestry at 303.739.7177.
Tree Limb Drop Off Site
City employees are hard at work cleaning up after the storm as they assess and clean up broken and downed trees on city properties like parks, recreation facilities, medians and arterial roadways, as well as city-owned trees on residential streets.
Tree debris will be turned into mulch; residents who would like to receive free mulch can access the mulch pile at the Hampden/Dawson site listed below. It is open to the public every day, and the city holds monthly Free Loader Days offering mulch loading assistance on April 23, May 7, June 25, July 23 and August 27.
To find out if you have city-owned trees in your neighborhood, see our FAQ section at www.auroragov.org/trees or call 303.739.7177. If residents would like to use their residential trash provider for limb removal, please contact your trash company to find out how branches should be prepared/bundled for pick up.
The City of Aurora Forestry Division cares for Aurora's urban forest, which includes city street trees and public trees in parks, medians and open spaces. Call us today at 303-739-7177.
Emerald Ash Borer
The emerald ash borer (EAB) insect is an invasive tree pest that was found in Boulder, CO in September, 2013. It has not been found anywhere in Aurora at this time, but it is expected to spread. Over the next decade, EAB has the potential to destroy more of Aurora's urban forest than any other disease or pest in history.
