Home to 62,000 people, Cheyenne is a cozy community with western flair, boasting the world’s largest outdoor rodeo. In addition to the array of western entertainment, Cheyenne also fosters an active lifestyle with more than 600 acres of park land (and tree canopy coverage of 24%) and 19,315 trees to explore.

Cheyenne’s urban forest saves the city more than $55,000 annually in stormwater management costs and accumulates $186,000 in energy savings. If you’re looking to enjoy fresh air then you’ll appreciate the 2.3 tons of pollutants that are removed annually, saving the city $8,000.

Whether you’re enjoying a stroll through the farmers market or a bike ride through the greenbelt, the city’s urban forest is something worth enjoying. In fact, it is valued at $34,596,242.
