Touring a Tree Farm
If you are a Tree Farmer and/or a Forest Ag participant who is dealing with the challenge of landscape threats to your woods such as insect infestation or wildfire, it is vital to get as many neighbors as possible using science based forest management practices.
Unfortunately many people find tree cutting to be damaging to the environment. One of the best ways to allay these concerns is to tour a Tree Farm to see the work being done and hear about the benefits of active forest management.
If you would like to attend a tour and witness the benefits for yourself, you should:
- read our Tree Farmer Alerts newsletter. Information on all our tours are posted there.
- contact your local district of the Colorado State Forest Service to find out about upcoming tours in your area.
Everyone is welcome!
Bring your neighbor!
We can also help you organize tours for neighbors, school children or the general public. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org If you attend a local community group, ask if other members could help. If you're interested in working with children, we've create a a special guide to help you deal with school districts. see: Tour Guidebook
