The Gunnison Field Office of the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) is one of 19 field offices in Colorado. We are a service and outreach agency of the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University (CSU). The CSFS state office is on the CSU Foothills Campus in Fort Collins.
Our mission is to achieve stewardship of Colorado’s diverse forest environments for the benefit of present and future generations.
The Colorado State Forest Service offers technical assistance and information to private landowners and homeowners interested in becoming good stewards of the natural resources on their land. We do not manage campgrounds, have jurisdiction over public lands or sell recreational licenses.
2018-2019 Seedling Tree Program Update
Please note that all seedling tree orders for the Gunnison Field Office will go through the CSFS Fort Collins Nursery this year. Please call or email the Nursery at (970) 491-8429 or CSFS_Trees@mail.colostate.edu for details.
Your order placed through the CSFS Nursery will still be available for pickup at the Gunnison Field Office. If an order is placed, you will be notified in the spring when your seedlings will be available.
If you have questions regarding what species would be appropriate for your site, the Gunnison Office (970) 641-6852 is available to help you with your selection. Remember, seedlings may be ordered now for spring delivery, so don’t hesitate if you’re interested in placing an order. Thank you.
