    they will achieve the greatest benefit Forest Landowners The Colorado State Forest Service is committed to helping homeowners and landowners promote healthy and sustainable forest conditions We offer many resources for our forest landowners in Colorado Urban Forestry The Colorado State Forest Service is available to help communities with their tree planting and tree care needs Caring for our trees not only protects our investment but provides benefits for the future Wood Products The Colorado Wood Utilization and Marketing program provides a wealth of resources and expertise to our wood products businesses and users across the state Management Practices for Different Forest Types Colorado s forest types evolved throughout our six ecoregions with varying sunlight nutrient water and elevational adaptations Requirements for Colorado s major tree species are varied as are the management approaches that are appropriate for these forest types For instance management practices that encourage healthy forest conditions in ponderosa pine in the montane zone will not be appropriate for lodgepole pine spruce fir piñon juniper or aspen forests The needs of these forest types are vastly different and therefore effective management strategies to encourage healthy forests in these various types also will vary Contact your local CSFS district or field office for assistance in this area Lodgepole Pine Management Lodgepole pine Pinus contorta is a familiar species in the montane and subalpine forests of Colorado s Rocky Mountains It grows at elevations between 6 000 and 11 000 feet As a consequence of the current mountain pine beetle epidemic many landowners and land managers are concerned about how to actively manage lodgepole pine stands to Treat the dead standing trees killed by the insects Protect homes and communities from wildfire Ensure that the future forest is better structured to prevent widespread mortality from insect epidemics and wildfire Learn More Gambel Oak Management Gambel Oak Quercus gambelii is a shrub mostly found along the Front Range to southern Colorado It grows at elevations between 6 000 and 9 000 feet Management of gambel oak is important because after recurring fires the shrubs can grow into thick clumps This may decrease the benefits for wildlife or livestock and increase wildfire risk Learn More Piñon Juniper Management Piñon juniper woodlands are widespread in Colorado s lower elevations ranging from 4 900 to 8 000 feet on Colorado s Western Slope and in limited distribution in south central Colorado and the Eastern Plains In southeastern Colorado piñon juniper ecosystems are found in the canyonlands and adjacent shortgrass prairie ecosystems below the Gambel oak zone Learn More Cottonwood Management Adapted to thrive on Colorado s Eastern Plains in mountain valleys and along riparian areas throughout the state cottonwoods represent the largest native broadleaf trees in the state and the most pervasive deciduous trees found at lower elevations Learn More Basic Forest Management Principles Forests are dynamic Other than natural growth and succession change agents include forest fires leading to plant succession windstorms diseases insects overly dense tree stands forest thinning and reforestation
