Action RequestsOur Forester's work on Citizen Action Requests daily. A Citizen can call the PLR Administration Office at 970-522-9700 or click here (Action Requests), to request a tree be looked at on the City easement on their property. Easements are based on street center points and will vary from street to street. When a call comes in from a Citizen, our head Forester will go to the property and measure to make sure that the tree in question is on city property, then from there determines what needs to be done with the tree.
