Creating a strong local wood economy by providing education, outreach, and assistance for Colorado’s wood products producers and users
Colorado Forest Products™ Program
Why Buy Colorado?
Help contribute to healthy forests in Colorado by purchasing locally produced wood products. By purchasing Colorado Forest Products, you support local businesses and reduce the cost of both keeping our forests green and protecting Colorado communities from wildfire.
Colorado has abundant markets for forest products, from fencing to firewood, animal beds to beds for your home. However, 90% of the forest products purchased by Coloradans are imported to our state. Purchasing Colorado Forest Products can:
- Reduce transportation fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse emissions
- Reduce the cost of forest management by retaining dollars in Colorado
- Increase job creation and retention in Colorado rural communities
- Increase ability and opportunity to improve forest health and reduce the threat of wildfire
The Colorado Forest Products™ program gladly partners with Colorado Proud™
