Los Padres Conifer Forests Restoration

Year Planted: 2010

Trees Planted: 192,000
Location: California

The Los Padres Conifer forests are in decline due to the large fires they experienced in 2006, 2007, and 2008. Altogether, these fires burned about 700,000 acres. The Los Padres Management Plan identified the Forest in 2005 as having only 8% of the Forests land base in a forested condition, with the vast majority of the remaining land base being chaparral. Tree planting will speed up the recovery of some of the conifer vegetation in this forest. This project will aim to plant 192,000 trees over 1,200 acres of National Forest land.
