DENVER –Thousands of Denver residents are turning over a new leaf by planting trees to help support Denver’s healthy and vibrant urban forest.

The trees were sold at Saturday’s annual Arbor Day tree sale.

More than 1,200 free and affordable trees were handed out. The trees were reserved in advance over the winter and homeowners filled out an application to put a hold on their tree.

They also had planting crews who went out and helped people who weren’t physically able to plant the tree.

Applications for new trees are typically available in late December.
