24 Years of Tree Growth in Westminster, Colorado

The Colorado State Forest Service, along with City of Westminster Forestry Staff, recently remeasured trees as part of a 24-year diameter growth rate study and updated the report initially published in 2000. The report characterized the long-term growth of 19 common urban tree species grown on publicly maintained land in Westminster for 1992-2016. The average trunk-diameter growth rates of the nearly 1,500 studied trees can be used by homeowners, landscape architects, designers/installers and tree care professionals to select trees for planting that will most quickly provide shade, aesthetics and other benefits after planting.
