As this photo shows, Boulder was not always the Boulder before trees lush urban forest we take for granted today! That’s CU’s Old Main sitting alone up on the hill; the line of trees below it is the cottonwood riparian area along Boulder Creek, and the trees in the foreground were planted by the farmer. The rest was grassland – and cacti! This tip is about adding this old friend back into the Front range garden.
