in Community

LITTLETON, CO – Littleton is the “Flowering Crabapple Capital of Colorado,” according to a 2014 proclamation, and this weekend is the time to enjoy the 7,000 pink crabapple trees along the city’s seven-mile crabapple route.

The trees were planted as part of a city beautification plan, starting in the late 1960s, according to the official webpage of the Littleton Crabapple Route. Homeowners were encouraged to plant them as well, leading to a monoculture of species around the city.
