Partners for Healthy Forests


The Colorado Timber Industry Association (CTIA) is an association of small, family owned businesses committed to logging, processing and performing service work in the forests of Colorado. We are exceptional partners to the public and private stewards of our valuable and beautiful forests. We embrace Best Management Practices (BMPs) and sustainable forestry. To meet these values, we host annual continuing education classes on BMPs and conduct field audits to demonstrate our accountability to high quality, active management designed to promote long term forest health.

Did you know?
In 2007, Colorado's forests supported 64 primary manufacturers that processed logs in 28 counties.
Today, there are 61 primary manufacturers processing logs in Colorado, a new biomass power plant and several counties and companies using biomass-fired boilers.

In 2015 we are highlighting Health Forests, Healthy Communities (HFHC), a similar coalition that "supports the need for active, sustainable forest management to provide stable county revenues and more jobs for our rural communities". Both organizations "support balanced policies that promote rural economic opportunity while maintaining the many benefits we have come to expect from our forests, including recreation and diverse wildlife populations."

We welcome you to further explore our website, and review some Colorado specific publications found on links to the annual Colorado Forest Health Reports, membership roster, and our library of information germane to Colorado forests.
