Allenspark Sort Yard 

Community Forestry Sort Yards

Boulder County has established two community forestry sort yards – in Allenspark and Nederland – to collect wood and slash from county residents.

Area residents can drop off logs and slash from private land for no charge at either community forestry sort yard, however, neither sort yard will accept logs infested with mountain pine beetles during the seasonal beetle flight from mid-July to mid-September. See below for scheduled operating dates and hours.

Periodically closed due to inclement weather and staff training. Call 303-678-6368 for operational status. We will update the outgoing message as soon as a temporary closure of the site is confirmed.

The Allenspark and Nederland Sort Yards are both closed for winter. Thanks to everyone who dropped off wood and slash in 2013.

You spoke, and we listened... Expanded sort yard operating days have been scheduled for 2014. The Allenspark and Nederland Sort Yards will be open Wednesday thru Saturday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m. starting May 1 at Allenspark and May 7 at Nederland. The last day of operation for the 2014 season will be October 18 for both Sort Yards. Both will be closed on July 4 and 5, and may have additional closures dependent upon weather, staffing, training and administrative requirements.

Allenspark Area Sort Yard: Closed for Winter – Opens May 1, 2014

Nederland Area Sort Yard: Closed for Winter – Opens May 7, 2014

Both sites accept:

  • Slash (tree limbs and branches)
  • Any size trees with no diameter limit, although we prefer logs to be cut to our specifications
  • Neither sort yard will accept logs infested with mountain pine beetles during the seasonal beetle flight from mid-July to mid-September.

Trees will be processed based on their condition or value for other applications.

Please Note: Dropped-off wood material is not for public firewood use. No yard clippings, weeds or other organic materials are accepted. Do not drop-off any construction materials, root balls, raked-up pine needles, dirt, furniture, household trash or wood with metal wire on/in it at any time at any forestry sort yard site.



As a reminder, county residents may use the county’s and the city of Boulder’s year-round and yard waste drop-off site (fees may apply) for items that are not accepted at forestry sort yards.
