Location: Central City, CO

My husband and I are partners in a Forest Management business, an online Art & Craft business, and a Yak Ranch. Our property is a Certified American Tree Farm.

Our focus is on making a difference in our Community and in the World. We assist and educate others with their forest management. Together we do everything from the beginning forest management plan to tree removals, to milling, to producing lumber and turning the wood into a finished project. When tree removal is required, we try to utilize every part of each tree. One of our projects is building a solar dry kiln.

Our Art & Craft business started due to our focus to recycle the trees into usable products. In our area, we are losing over 95% of our Pines to beetle kill.

Our Yaks are a valuable part of our Tree Farm Management plan. They help stir the soil and produce manure for compost that we need for the planting of new trees, bushes and grasses and for the building of top soil which is practically non-existent at 9,400 ft elevation. We are trying to show others by example that despite the catastrophic tree loss in our area, they have a unique opportunity to help create the next forest for future generations. They can actually be the true stewards of their forest.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.
