Express Yourself

The American Tree Farm System would like to know how they can improve their program in order to provide you with more of the information and services that you need and would use.

Please take a few minutes to take the online survey linked below. You don't have to be a Tree Farmer and you don't have to identify yourself.

Hey, if you do take the survey, let us know what you think of it. Thanks, Stumpmaker



Sustainable Forestry and Watershed Conservation

Go hand in hand

The NRCS has announced the local watershed workgroup meeting schedule for this spring. Our forestry partners and our past involvement at these meetings has resulted in considerable funding becoming available for non-industrial forest landowners to manage their forest lands. Tree Farmers are encouraged to participate and/or spread word to all those interested in forestry at the local level. Feel free to call me if you have questions. (Greg Sundstrom, 970-491-5342).

There will be two Input Forums for the Upper South Platte.  The first will occur on April 27th at Kirk Hall, 500 Fairgrounds Dr.

Castle Rock, CO; and the second will occur on April 29th at the Southwest Weld County Services Complex, 4209 Weld County Road 24 1/2, Longmont, CO.
