The City set a tree canopy goal of 18% across the city and the Hilltop neighborhood exceeds Denver’s goal by 24%. The benefit of the tree canopies across the metropolitan area is estimated to be more than $15 million annually.

Since the launch of Be a Smart Ash, the Office of the Denver City Forester has planted more than 10,000 free trees for Denver property owners who have space for a tree in their public right-of-way including in Hilltop. Residents can apply online at and a certified arborist evaluates your property, determining the best kind of tree for the site. Once an owner qualifies, the new tree is delivered and planted along with specific care instructions to ensure a healthy future.
