Forestry

Responsibilities


The City Forestry operation is responsible for maintenance of the city's urban forest.
 
Trees in the parks, on the sidewalks, and in the medians are all cared for by the Brighton Parks and Recreation Forestry Division. With a large inventory of street and park trees the Forestry Division always has a busy day. Like any living and growing thing, trees require water, air, sunlight, and a little TLC.
 

Tree Trimming


All persons engaged in the business of performing tree care and landscaping (spraying) in Brighton must have a license. The Contractor's License and Tree Care addendum must both be completed and submitted to our One Stop Customer Service Center at City Hall:
500 S. Fourth Ave.
Brighton, CO 80601
