Fallen tree drop-off collection site open for Glenwood Springs residents through April 12
City of Glenwood Springs crews are working to clear large trees that have fallen into the public right of way or are safety hazards following high winds on April 3. If you have a large fallen tree and have not yet spoken to the Public Works Department, please contact Matt Langhorst at 970-384-6438 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, Glenwood Springs residents may drop off fallen trees and branches at the old rodeo grounds, adjacent to the airport now through Wednesday, April 12. The site will be open 24 hours a day for the next week. The collection site is not available for use by commercial operators.
Property owners are responsible for tree maintenance on their property and adjacent rights of way. For detailed information about trees on private property, please view section 090.050.040 in the municipal code.
Late winter is the best time to prune most trees. If a job requires running a chainsaw overhead or removing large branches or entire trees, it is best to contact an insured, ISA Certified Arborist. A list of these professionals can be found at isa-arbor.com. If you have questions, you may contact Urban Ecology & Public Spaces Supervisor Heather Listermann at 970-384-6367 or email@example.com.
Some areas of Glenwood Springs also experienced electric outages due to high winds. Severe wind caused damage to three electric poles which crews are working to replace.
