Name of Project: Tahoe National Forest Wildfire Reforestation

Number of Trees to be Planted: 29,000

Directly Benefits: Recreationalists

Location: California

Year: 2011

Goals

·         Reforest 156 acres

·         Improve water quality

·         Restore wildlife habitat

 

Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to replant a portion of the Tahoe National Forest that was damaged in a 2005 wildfire. Some areas burned hotter than others, resulting in a patchwork landscape. In the planting area, the fire burned so hot that no seed sources remain. Because of this, the site has not been able to regenerate naturally.

The Tahoe National Forest was created in 1899, and is currently one of the most popular recreation forests in the US. Many people flock to the region each year to take advantage of its many opportunities for skiing, hiking, horseback riding, boating, and biking.
