Approximately 6 million acres of private forestland exist in Colorado. Like all natural resources, forests require proper management to be healthy and productive. By managing your forest, you can protect water quality, increase habitat diversity for wildlife and increase the growth rate of your trees.
In addition, properly managed forests can provide income, reduce the risk of wildland fire, help protect trees against insects and diseases, and even increase the value of your property.
To find out how you can participate in the Forest Stewardship Program please contact your local Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) District Office.
