Name of Project: Securing Sustenance Fisheries in Six Rivers National Forest

Number of Trees to be Planted:26,000

Directly Benefits: Yurok, Karuk, and Hoopa tribes

Location:California

Year:2011

Goals

  • Reforest 160 acres
  • Protect fisheries used by Native American communities
  • Enhance scenic value

Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to replant parts of the Six Rivers National Forest that were damaged by a wildfire. 

Planting trees on slopes in this area will help to stabilize the soil and reduce the amount of sediment that falls into the Clear Water Gulch, Hopkins Creek, and Klamath River. Improving the water quality will make for larger and healthier fish populations, which is especially important in this region. The local Yurok, Karuk, and Hoopa tribes rely on the Klamath River and its fisheries for sustenance fishing.

The Klamath River is also designated as a Wild and Scenic River. Replanting this area will help to restore its scenic beauty, bringing greater ecotourism to the region, and benefiting the local economy.
