COLORADO SPRINGS — All across the city, piles of debris – mostly made up of fallen branches – continue to grow, following a heavy spring snow over the weekend.

City and county resources will take responsibility for certain trees, but the burden falls on the homeowner when it comes to problems with private trees.

Here are a few options for when you’re ready to clear that debris off your property.

The City of Manitou Springs will host three opportunities for wood disposal on the following dates:

Friday, May 27
8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Public Works Facility (101 Banks Place)

Saturday, May 28
8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Public Works Facility (101 Banks Place)

Saturday, June 4
8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Public Works Facility (101 Banks Place)

There is another free drop-off for people in Pueblo starting Tuesday, May 24:

Lake Minnequa Park
Mon. – Fri. 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Sat. – 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Drop off at intersection of Palmer and Reno Avenues

As of yet, no free disposal events have been planned for Colorado Springs. However, Rocky Top Resources will accept branches and tree limbs for a fee. They are offering a reduced rate on Saturday, May 28.

Important Tree Information
