As a native of Iowa, David graduated from Iowa State University with a BS in Landscape Architecture. After serving in US Army Intelligence, David lived and practiced landscape architecture in Missouri and Minnesota before moving to Cheyenne in 1979. He established his firm, David Ohde & Associates, in 1984 and is a licensed landscape architect. His firm specializes in large scale public and private projects and has provided design services for many State, University, local and federal agencies across the State of Wyoming.
David joined the Rooted in Cheyenne board because he feels trees are such an important part of our community for our quality of life. He sees trees as a way to improve our community now, and far into the future. His favorite tree is the Crabapple (any variety) because of the colorful interest they offer and because their blooming signals that Spring is finally here.
