Paper Bark Birch - Betula papyrifera
Colorado is known for its aspens, but aspens don't grow well at the city's altitude (Denver). White birch make a nice substitute. Their lacy leaves soothe the eyes and ears while their white bark makes a lovely accent.

Juniper Tree - Juniperus spp
There are a wide variety of junipers, used ornamentally and for privacy. They use very little water once established. They do need to be kept trimmed or they get nasty. The magic of juniper includes protection, so they make a good plant for the front yard. You can also harvest the berries for spicing fowl.
