About Foothills Vegetation Management

Foothills Vegetation Management was founded in July 1997. The mission of this company is to provide environmentally responsible services to control plants that threaten Colorado’s natural resources.

The main market area is located within a 100 mile radius of Conifer CO. Residential turf and tree/shrub fertilization, weed, insect, and disease control work will be offered on a limited basis.



FVM has a wide variety of equipment to suit your weed control needs. We have 4 trucks that have 400' + of hose that allows us to reach most areas on a property using a handgun and low pressure spray to treat your weeds. For projects requiring large, flat, open areas to be treated, we offer ATV, tractor and truck mounted boomless spray systems (2-4 acre minimum depending on site conditions) as well as order specific applications for very large expanses of land. Remote sites can be accessed by backpacking, if all other methods cannot be done.
