The Colorado State Forest Service and the Arbor Day Foundation have donated 10,000 trees to residents of Black Forest in El Paso County and the Big Thompson Canyon in Larimer County.

Five thousand trees will go to each community. In Black Forest, the trees will be given to homeowners who applied for them through Black Forest Together, the local recovery nonprofit. Big Thompson Canyon residents can get trees through the Big Thompson Canyon Association.

This is the second year of the Colorado Community Tree Recovery program. Last year's campaign distributed more than 9,000 trees to residents affected by the High Park fire, also in Larimer County.

Big Thompson Canyon residents picked up their trees on April 23. Black Forest residents can pick up their trees on May 9 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Black Forest Fire Rescue and Protection District station two, at 16465 Ridge Run Road.
