"Our Denver Digs Trees program is a time-honored tradition in Denver, and, as The Park People celebrates our 40th birthday this year, the program holds even more significance," says Paige Heydon-McCrary, executive director of The Park People. "Annually, we distribute between 1,200-1,600 street trees throughout Denver. We have enhanced the city's urban forest by adding more than 35,000 street trees, with hundreds more sold each year at our Earth Day tree sale."
