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.
Community Chipping Reimbursement Program
Boulder County offers financial assistance to encourage mountain communities to conduct community-based chipping projects.
- Applications are accepted annually each spring.
- In 2015, we awarded $20,000 in reimbursement to eight communities.
- If your community would like to be considered for funding, please Community Chipping Reimbursement Program.

Sort Yards and Forestry Collection Sites
Boulder County has established Community Forestry Sort Yards – near Allenspark and Nederland – to collect logs, tree branches, yard waste, and noxious weeds from county residents. See Community Forestry Sort Yards of operating dates, locations and hours.
As a reminder, county residents may use the county’s and the city of Boulder’s year-round Yard Waste and Food Scrap Drop-off (fees may apply).
