Colorado's Forest Area Coverage
Forests and woodlands cover approximately 24 million acres in Colorado, or 34.42% of the state's land area. This makes Colorado the 10th most forested state in the United States. The majority of Colorado's forests are coniferous, with the most common tree species being ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, and Engelmann spruce.

Colorado's forests are facing a number of challenges, including climate change, wildfires, and invasive species. Climate change is causing the forests to warm and dry, which is making them more susceptible to wildfires.

The Impact of Forest Fires on Colorado Air Quality

Forest fires have a significant impact on the Air Quality Index (AQI). Forest fires release large amounts of particulate matter into the air, which can have harmful effects on human health. Forest fires also produce carbon monoxide, which is harmful when inhaled in high concentrations. Forest fires can also release other pollutants, such as sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), depending on the composition of the vegetation being burned. These pollutants can further deteriorate air quality and contribute to an increased AQI.
