colorado pine beetle mitigation

Mountain Pine Beetle

The Spruce, fir, and pine beetles are a natural part of our forest ecosystem. However, because of our think, dense and unhealthy forests, we have an unbalance that creates an epidemic in our trees. Therefore, we have a need to mitigate for these disturbances. Often the prescription will include thinning your trees, adding nutrients to the soil, spraying for the beetle, and planting to diversify your forest. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THINNING

colorado tree insects and diseases

Insects & Diseases

These are an important element of our forest ecosystem as they are part of the natural cycle of our forests. Because of our lack of forest disturbances we have created unnatural and dense forests, and monoculture/even-aged stands of trees. Mitigating for insect and disease outbreaks would include thinning your trees and adding nutrients to the soil.

colorado forest thinning

Unnatural & Dense Forests

Our forests consist of even-aged stands of monoculture trees. Because of the lack of fire and natural thinning events, they have become unnatural and dense. Terra Firma Forestry can mimic natural events by thinning the forests without the dangers and discomforts associated with these events.
