Wildfires, floods, insect infestations and other natural disasters have a huge impact on Colorado’s forested areas.
In the aftermath of destructive wildfires, reforesting burned land helps protect water supplies, restores wildlife habitat and reduces flooding and erosion.
The Restoring Colorado’s Forests Fund (RCFF) was established to provide seedling trees for planting on lands most severely impacted by wildfires and other disasters.
Private landowners in southeast Colorado and across the state may apply for no-cost seedling trees (PDF) to help reforest their properties. Areas deemed most critical to watershed protection, wildlife habitat and public benefit qualify for planting efforts.
Support the Fund
You can also help restore our forests by donating to the RCFF. Your tax-deductible donations pay for seedling trees for planting on state and private land impacted by wildfires and other disasters. Every $2 donation will purchase one seedling.
