A Year of Major Milestones in Colorado & Across the U.S.
2015 marked major milestones for forest conservation and management in Colorado and across the U.S. The Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) celebrated its 60th anniversary – providing six decades of timely, relevant forestry information to Colorado.
The CSFS and USDA Forest Service (USFS) also celebrated the 25th anniversary of the 1990 Farm Bill, which significantly enhanced the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act, enabling the USFS to provide broad financial and technical assistance to states and private landowners.
The USFS cooperative forestry programs authorized in the 1990 Farm Bill – Forest Legacy, Forest Stewardship and Urban & Community Forestry – are delivered in close partnership with state forestry agencies and support the health of both rural and urban forests.
