KEEPING LAKEWOOD’S TREES TOPS
Got trees? In Lakewood? Then you are one of the nearly 157,000 city residents enjoying them.
This is a municipality where trees are treasured. Lakewood has been honored 36 years running with a Tree City USA award for its attendance to the 6,000 trees in the city parks plus another 33,000 street trees. One-quarter of Lakewood is dedicated to parks and open space.
First platted in 1889 by Charles Welch and W.A.H. Loveland, Lakewood is 5.39 miles from Denver, a 12-minute drive on 6th Avenue in minimal traffic. As the fifth largest city in the state of Colorado, Lakewood has 65,737 households of all types (single family to apartments) and includes 11 zip codes: 80123, 80127, 80214, 80215, 80226, 80227, 80228, 80232, 80235, 80401, and 80465.
As real estate goes, Lakewood’s got a lot of trees in a lot of yards. Redfin.com reports that homes for sale in Lakewood in 2020 get multiple offers, often with waived contingencies, at around list price, going pending in five days. One reason Redfin’s Hot Homes in the municipality can sell for about 2% more than list price, it’s because of the trees in the yard.
