Colorado Forest Restoration Institute

The Colorado Forest Restoration Institute was established at Colorado State University in 2004 through the Southwest Forest Health and Wildfire Prevention Act, along with the restoration institutes at New Mexico Highlands University and Northern Arizona.  The purposes of the institutes are to compile, translate, and apply the most current scientific information relevant to the needs of forest managers and communities in taking action to mitigate wildfire risk and restore healthy forest conditions. CFRI is a special unit in the Warner College of Natural Resources and draws on the unique strenghts of forest ecology and management sciences at Colorado State University and beyond.
