Land Management and Forest Management Consulting

Terra Firma Forestry combines professionals with educational backgrounds with years of on the job forestry experience to help you make thoughtful decisions about your property and its forests.

Some people have just moved into the Colorado mountains and are not quite sure how to fulfill their new responsibilities as stewards of the land. Terra Firma Forestry is here to engage in Forest Stewardship Consulting such as:

  • Soil health and condition
  • Names and ages of trees and vegetation
  • Climate, aspect, and topography
  • Forest history
  • Natural fire regimes
  • Current conditions of our forests and forest health issues such as wind thrown trees, natural disturbances, mountain pine beetle, insects & disease, wildfire mitigation, noxious weed control, unnatural & dense forests
  • Forest products and firewood (selling or buying) and milled trees

Together we will walk your land and discuss your goals and the things that are best for the forest. We then will come up with a prescription and a management plan for your forests or vegetated lands.

Are you looking to buy or sell a home? People in the real estate market want to know the health of the trees and forests as well as the hazards that might be imposed by buying a mountain home or an in-town home.

In-town homes:

We are here to consult on hazard trees, mature tree care, young tree care, possible planting areas, type of trees to plant, identification, landscape planning, and costs to you as the buyer or seller of the home.

Mountain homes:

We consult on curb appeal to clean up your forested property to increase its value and help it sell faster. We consult on:

  • How to open up a view while leaving privacy screening intact
  • Increase usable and hike-able acres
  • Clear out access to nice features of the property
  • Wildfire Mitigation
  • Mountain Pine Beetle and Spruce Beetle management
  • Tree Planting and forest improvement
