The Colorado State Forest Service is the state’s primary resource for forestry information and assistance. The CSFS continues to work with private forest landowners, other cooperators and stakeholders to manage Colorado’s forested lands by providing technical assistance, information and outreach that helps them meet their individual and collective stewardship objectives.

By managing our forests, we can protect water quality, increase habitat diversity for wildlife, and improve forest health and condition. In addition, properly managed forests can reduce the risk of wildfire, help protect trees from insects and diseases, increase property value and provide income. By working together, we can help improve forest conditions, creating diverse, resilient and sustainable forests for the benefit of present and future generations.
