The new strategic plan outlines the vision, mission and strategic goals of the CSFS through 2020 and is designed to be a guiding document that provides clear direction, is easy to understand and used regularly internally and externally.
The Colorado State Forest Service has provided six decades of timely, relevant forestry information to Colorado. The CSFS is a service and outreach agency of the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University.
Emerald ash borer (EAB) was confirmed for the first time in Colorado, in the City of Boulder in 2013. The destructive, non-native insect now poses an emerging and serious threat to Colorado’s urban and community forests.
The CSFS helps manage forest product sales on private and state lands. Products available at these sales include firewood, posts and poles, products other than logs (POL), and saw logs. Interested bidders can view current sales information here.
