What is the Colorado Forest Products™ Program?

CFP-Logo2011-MEDIUM

The Colorado Forest Products™ (CFP) Program is a companion campaign to Colorado Proud™ and results in increased awareness about Colorado’s forest and wood products industry by:

  • Promoting the use of Colorado wood in new and existing markets
  • Encouraging the development of businesses dedicated to the use of Colorado wood
  • Educating Colorado citizens on the economic, environmental and social consequences that imported wood has on our state’s economy
  • Informing consumers about the benefits of buying wood products from Colorado growers, manufacturers and retailers
More than 140 businesses in our state manufacture products made from Colorado wood.
