Tree Care

The Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership plants trees as part of our riparian restoration efforts. We planted eight conifer trees in Rollans Park on May 30, 2020, and learned some helpful tips for caring for newly planted trees and established trees. These may be helpful resources to others who want to plant trees in Ouray County.

Please join us for Love Your Gorge at Ouray Ice Park on Sept. 12, 2020, to plant more trees and clean up the park area.
