Perhaps the most unfortunate effect of the loss of water at pay someone to do your assignment Riverside since 2002 is the death of the majority of the mature trees in the Cemetery. There at least 100 dead trees at Riverside, and unfortunately some of these trees are now threatening many of the monuments in the cemetery.

These photos shows just two of the “leaning trees”, one in block two and one in block 13; the tree in block 13 is endangering the monument to Colonel James Archer (1824-1882), who helped to bring gas lights and a piped water system to the City of Denver.

In her book “From the Grave“, the historian Linda Wommack says that “His monument is one of the most impressive in all the cemetery.”

Of course, it would be very expensive to remove all the dead trees at Riverside, and the owners, Fairmount Cemetery Company, do not currently have the budget to support the cost of this program. The Friends of Historic Riverside Cemetery would love to hear from anyone who has ideas on how we can safely remove the dead trees from Riverside. Contact us at
