You Can Help by Donating to the Following Funds

Colorado Bark Beetle Mitigation

Colorado’s forests have experienced the largest pine beetle outbreak in our state’s recorded history. Our vision for the future is to help Colorado’s forests develop greater resilience to insect and disease epidemics.

Donations to the Colorado Bark Beetle Mitigation Fund provide funding to help remove dead and dying beetle-infested trees on state-owned forestlands.

Colorado State Forest Service

Donations to the Colorado State Forest Service Fund will help support CSFS programs and activities that facilitate our mission “to achieve stewardship of Colorado’s diverse forest environments for the benefit of present and future generations.”

Forest Legacy Monitoring Endowment

Donations to the Forest Legacy Monitoring Endowment will support monitoring of Forest Legacy Conservation Easements.

Restoring Colorado’s Forests Fund

In the aftermath of destructive wildfires, reforestation of burned land helps protect water supplies, restores wildlife habitat and reduces flooding and erosion.

Donations to the Restoring Colorado’s Forests fund will provide tree seedlings for planting on privately owned and state-managed lands throughout Colorado that have been most severely impacted by wildfire or other disasters. Areas that are most critical to water protection and wildlife habitat, and that provide the most public benefit, will be targeted for planting efforts.

For more information and to download a donation form, view our Restoring Colorado’s Forests fund flyer (1.5 MB PDF).

Thomas B. Borden Tree Account

Donations to the Tom Borden Tree Account will help fund trees that will be planted on the Colorado State University Main Campus and foothills campuses. Other special activities or proposals related to university vegetation management also will be considered.

Thank you for your support!
