Peak to Peak Wood

After cutting away vegetation

Peak to Peak Wood, is a partnership of five counties of the Northern Front Range, the town of Estes Park, the USFS, CSFS and Colorado State Parks. The Peak to Peak Wood partnership was formed through a grant which was received by Colorado State Parks. The goals are to assist the public in the disposal of wood from forest management, fire mitigation and mountain pine beetle mitigation projects on their properties and to develop a market for the small diameter wood.

Larimer County operates one woody biomass collection site where the public can dispose of wood from their projects. The site is located in Stove Prairie just south of the Stove Prairie School. The Stove Prairie site will open for the 2012 season on June 2 and will operate on Saturdays only throughout June. Hours of operation will be 9:00- 4:00. Please visit the Peak to Peak Wood website at Peak to Peak Wood, for additional information and preferred wood specs. The Stove Prairie site does not accept slash.

A second site previously operated by Larimer County has transferred operations to a private for profit group. This site is in Red Feather Lakes located on the Creedmore Lakes Rd. Information for this site can be viewed at www.slashsolutionsllc.com.

There are two other collection sites in Larimer County, one is in the town of Estes Park and operated by the town and the other site is along Highway 7 north of the Larimer/ Boulder County line and is operated by Boulder County.
