About Fireweed Ecological Services
My interest in restoring privately-owned natural areas in Colorado’s mountains and foothills dates back to my family’s purchase of 43 acres of forested land in Bailey nearly three decades ago. My training as an ecologist gained new meaning as we grappled with insects and disease in conifers and aspen, planted hundreds of seedling trees and shrubs, dealt with the aftermath of the Snaking Gulch Fire, revegetated with native grasses, controlled noxious weeds, and created defensible space around the log cabin we had built.
Fireweed Ecological Services LLC was born in 2020, a small consulting and management business with a focus on noxious weed control, forest health and wildfire preparedness. As a nimble and independent contractor in the realm of vegetation management and fire mitigation, I am passionate about helping other property owners in Colorado’s mountain and foothill communities live confidently and harmoniously within the wildland-urban interface.
Fireweed’s service area spans the front range mountains and foothills communities in central Colorado including the counties of Jefferson, Park, Clear Creek, Douglas and beyond. Regions further afield are considered on a case-by-case basis.
