Park Hill residents can replace trees tagged for removal in the East 25th Avenue power-line upgrade project with these approved species... Branchless Oak. The easy-autumn rake-up tree shown above is recommended for planting in parking strips of 36 inches or less. Residents who hate to rake, see below... Circle Pines. The growth pattern of the double-trunked spruce trees seen in the illustration above, is actually guided by voltage. Page down to see more options for classic tree lovers... Dogleg Maple. The Zigzagging trunk of the tree shown in the center of the illustration above, allows the canopy to grow in an open space away from power lines. Page down to see a piece of ash... Half-Ash. As seen in the drawing above, single-side tree branching is perfect for homes that sit on the south side of city avenues.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
