BFT has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation, 5Star Bank, Colorado State Forest Service and AC Golden Brewing Company to offer tree seedlings to the Black Forest residents effected by the Black Forest Fire. This year we will be handing out over 8,500 seedlings including species such as Chokecherry, Honey Locust, Ponderosa Pine and White Fir.
All species this year are pre-bundled in groups of 25 and 30 seedlings a piece. You may pick the species that you want, however, it will be on a first come first serve basis. All residents will be limited to reserving 2 bundles of seedlings. This will be subject to change depending on demand, if we have left-over seedlings we will hand them out at the end of the day. We encourage all residents to do their research on how to properly plant seedlings. The Colorado State Forest Service has a provided a link below on proper planting, the guidelines can also be found on the Black Forest Together website:

The Event will held on May 6th 2017 at Fire Station 2 on Ridge Run Road (corner of Hodgen). Pick-up times will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. BFT would also like to thank the Black Forest Fire and Rescue Protection District for allowing us use of their facilities for the Giveaway. We hope to see you all there!
How to Order:
To order online, please click here. This year Black Forest Together will need to charge a small fee of $5 per bundle to help us cover the cost of hosting this event. You will pay on the day of pick up.
Unfortunately, without this small fee BFT will no longer be able to facilitate this giveaway in the future.
