In case you haven't noticed yet, the CSFS Alamosa District office received a face lift as well as a new logo! This past year the Colorado State University started a re-branding campaign, and chose the CSFS to be one of the first groups within CSU to get a logo update. We also have the 2017 Conservation Seedling Program order forms available!

How do Trees Survive Winter Cold? | The Outside Story

With the cold weather settling in here in the San Luis Valley, I am sure some folks out there are wondering how trees can survive sub-zero weather. Yesterday I came across an article written by Michael Snyder, Forester and Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation.

With Christmas right around the corner we hoped to do a 12 trees of Christmas series, highlighting the top 12 tree species commonly used as Christmas trees. In the crunch before the holidays we missed the first two days. So without further ado we present to you the 10 trees of Christmas!
The most popular Christmas tree sold on the Alamosa District is the White Fir, also referred to as Concolor Fir. This tree is generally characterized by soft blue/green needles that are 1 ½ to 3 inches long. The trees found in the Rocky Mountains are usually smaller than their California relatives measuring in at heights usually less than 100 feet tall and with diameters ranging from 15 to 30 inches in diameter at breast height or dbh.
White fir also have good needle retention, nice fragrance (citrus scent), and the desirable conical form. These are qualities that make it such a popular option.
