Fort Collins Drop-Off Locations for Storm Branches
The City of Fort Collins expects the locations to be open for the public to bring broken tree limbs for six weeks, after the 27-inch 'Snowmageddon.'
While things outside are warming up and melting large mounds of shoveled and snowplowed snow, the remnants of the storm remain: downed tree limbs. The storm brought wet and heavy snow taking now many limbs and branches across the Choice City.
For those who have the ability to move their branches, beginning on March 25, 2021, the city's Forestry Division has set up two locations where they can be disposed of for free.
HAGEMAN'S EARTH CYCLE
3501 East Prospect Road -Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
I remember a 'radio' promotion we did a long time ago, where folks brought out their Halloween pumpkins to toss into a water bucket to win prizes. There were a lot of broken pumpkins; we brought that all out to Hagaman's.
CSU's Old Hughes Stadium Site
2400 Block of South Overland Road, access on Dixon Canyon Road- 7 days a week 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
This site is still being finalized but should be available by March 27, 2021.
If you need an arborist to come to your residence the city has a list of licensed companies HERE.
Fort Collin's Street Division is currently performing curbside cleanup in the Old Town area, known as Area 1 in Urban Forest Storm Response Plan.
From the City of Fort Collins:
Within this area, the zone most severely impacted is denoted by the following streets as borders: Riverside Ave (east), Prospect Rd (south), Taft Hill Rd (west) and Vine Dr (north). Clean-up efforts have begun in the western portion of this area and will continue in this zone until hazards and downed limbs are removed.
It is important to remember that people and trees were impacted, in many ways, throughout the community and clean-up efforts are likely to take six to nine months to mitigate the hazards in both private and public trees.
