Peak to Peak Wood is a five-county effort in Colorado’s northern Front Range that creates markets for products coming from the state’s fire-threatened public and private forests in order to lower fuels mitigation costs.
The Peak to Peak Wood Program was started with a U.S. Forest Service grant and has a goal of marketing and utilizing forest products from Colorado’s forests.
Program funding by the USFS and administration by the Colorado State Forest Service have assisted private and public landowners with managing their forested lands through a network of sort yards located in five participating counties.
The yards take in logs collected from forest management activities, including areas treated for mountain pine beetle.
