Larimer County Wood Collection Yards Opening Dates

 

Larimer County, Colorado – The Larimer County Woody Biomass Collection/Sort Yards are set to open.

Larimer County Forester Dave Lentz says the sites are meant to assist the public, “The sort yards began in 2008 to assist the public in removing downed timber from their forest health projects such as fire mitigation and pine beetle tree removal.” A partner of Peak to Peak Wood, Larimer County operates two sites:

 

Hours at both sites will be 9:00am-4:00pm. What will be taken:

1.      Logs 8ft. 4in. or longer are preferred though shorter logs will be accepted.

2.      No stumps or rotting logs will be accepted.

3.      Branches are to be cut flush with the logs.

4.      No slash will be accepted at either site.
