Trees provide valuable benefits

One of the greatest benefits of a citywide tree planting program in Cheyenne is to help maintain and diversify our city’s century old tree canopy. Studies show that programs like Rooted in Cheyenne can provide tangible growth in these key areas:

For our Health

Trees filter airborne pollutants and reduce the conditions that cause asthma and other respiratory problems.

For our Community

Trees and green spaces help reduce crime, boost neighborhood pride, and foster connectivity.

For our Environment

Trees provide shade, wind protection, reduce stormwater runoff and erosion, making our neighborhoods appealing and resilient.

For our Economy

Trees reduce heating and cooling costs for residents while at the same time increasing property values.

Make a donation to help us with our work

Cheyenne’s residents have always been progressive about increasing the green infrastructure in our city. In fact, the tree canopy we enjoy today was established as early as 1882!

However, as a result of an aging forest and past extreme weather events, Cheyenne is currently experiencing a high mortality rate in its street tree population.

Generous donors and sponsors like you ensure that our program is able to continue its mission here in Cheyenne.
