You can visit the Peak to Peak Wood web site at www.peaktopeakwood.org for log specifications. The log work is done by hand and larger logs can be a problem at the site.

2. No stumps or rotting logs will be accepted.
3. Branches are to be cut flush with the logs, no pig ears.

In the past Larimer County operated two sites, this one at Stove Prairie and the other in the Red Feather Lakes area. The Red Feather Lakes site has been transferred to Slash Solutions, a private entity. You can visit their web site at www.slashsolutionsllc.com for information on that site.
