COS 150 Tree Challenge

As we get ready to celebrate our City's 150th anniversary, it's exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City's founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland - which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world. Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

Another of Palmer's amazing legacies to our community is our tree-lined city. When he founded our city in 1871, it was a nearly treeless, arid plain. Palmer changed that by planting thousands of trees in our city. To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2021 and carry on Palmer's vision of a tree-lined city, we are challenging the community to help plant 18,071 new trees over the next two years.
