Good People. Great Products. Green Forests.

CFP-Logo2011-MEDIUM

The Colorado Forest Products™ program is here to help connect our family owned forest product businesses with community members interested in purchasing a variety of products produced locally and from trees harvested right here in Colorado.

Why Buy Colorado?

Help contribute to healthy forests in Colorado by purchasing locally produced wood products. By purchasing Colorado Forest Products™, you are supporting local businesses and reducing 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 bedding to beds for your home. However, 90% of the forest products purchased by Coloradans are imported to our state. Purchasing Colorado Forest Products helps with:

  • Reducing fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse emissions from transportation
  • Retaining dollars in Colorado
  • Increasing job creation and retention in Colorado’s rural communities
  • Increasing opportunities to improve forest health and reduce the threat of wildfire

Take some time today to search businesses near you that can provide you with products harvested right from our backyard!

The Colorado Forest Products™ program gladly partners with Colorado Proud™ advocating the benefits of buying locally.
