About Us

A Healthy Forest Is No Accident


The mission of the Colorado State Tree Farm System is to encourage the management of private forest land for the production of forest products and the protection and enhancement
of other natural resources. Our goal is to leave our woodlands healthier and more abundant for future generations. We are co-sponsored by the Colorado Timber Industry Association, The Colorado Forestry Association, and the Colorado State Forest Service. Please accept this invitation to browse our website and get an idea of what we do and why we do it.

Colorado State Tree Farm Committee Members

Part of the mission of the Colorado Tree Farmers is to inform the public of the need for active forest management of private forested property and encourage landowners to get started. We therefore encourage ALL owners of forested property and anyone else interested in the health and sustainability of our forests to attend our meetings, tours and other events. We will be happy to share our knowledge with and answer questions from anyone.
