Forest Health

Boulder County's Forest Health program promotes forest sustainability through outreach and education with private landowners. We believe working with individuals and communities to encourage healthy forests is important to making a positive impact on our natural ecosystems and helping landowners achieve their specific land management goals.

Wildfire Partners

Wildfire Partners is a new, voluntary program to help homeowners in Boulder County prepare for wildfire. Wildfire Partners provides a comprehensive on-site assessment of your home ignition zone including a customized report detailing actions you should take to ensure that you are fully prepared for future wildfires. Find out more and apply online at wildfirepartners.org.

Sort Yards and Forestry Collection Sites

Boulder County has established two community forestry sort yards – near Allenspark and Nederland – to collect wood and slash from county residents. In 2014, both sort yards are scheduled to open in early May and operate until Oct. 18. See schedule of operating dates, locations and hours.

As a reminder, county residents may use the county’s and the city of Boulder’s year-round food and yard waste drop-off site (fees may apply).
