2012 Forestry Best Management Practices Field Audit 

Our CSFS website now has a web link for the 2012 Forestry Best Management Practices Field Audit Report:


This past year’s audit was conducted in southwestern Colorado on our Alamosa, Cañon City, and Durango districts. John Janowski of Pagosa Springs participated on the field audit team as the Colorado Tree Farmers’ local representative (i.e. San Juan Tree Farmers).

My CSFS colleague Kristina Hughes, has designed a more impactive home for our Colorado Forest Products™  Television Commercials.  Our CFP™ commercials  are in their final week of their 3-week airing and our new site will be more permanent place to view and share our efforts to enhance the profile and recognition of Colorado’s forest product business community.  Click on either of these two links, http://csfs.colostate.edu/cowood/cfp-psa.html or http://csfs.colostate.edu/cowood/cfp.html .
