Name of Project: Replanting Ski Areas in Sierra National Forest

Number of Trees to be Planted: 32,800

Directly Benefits: Skiers

Location: California

Year: 2011

Goals

  • Reforest 152 acres of land damaged by wildfire
  • Enhance aesthetic benefits of a widely used recreation area
  • Increase skier safety

 

Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to replant a section of the Sierra National Forest that has been damaged by wildfires and insect damage. The planting will occur in the Sierra Summit Ski Area and the Huntington Recreation Area, both of which play host to tens of thousands of skiers and snow recreationists each year. 

Dead trees from the wildfire have affected the slopes’ visual quality, as well as skier safety. This planting will help to better define the ski runs, creating a safer environment for skiers, and protecting other vegetation from skiers’ activity and equipment.
