Cottonwoods in Denver

cottonwood wood tree removal and stump grinding

Cottonwood trees are very Colorado. You see these trees growing along streams when driving in the mountains or the grasslands. Cottonwoods grow fast. This trait made them popular to plant in the 1970s and 1980s in new subdivisions to create shade.

There were two characteristics that people did not consider back then. Cottonwoods drink 100 gallons of water per day, and they can become enormous. The trees drop limbs throughout the year and produce mountains of floating cotton in the fall. Regardless to all its negatives, the cottonwood species is spectacular in its size.
