Give today to help restore local and global ecosystems.

Project Name: Washo Reserve Cypress Restoration

Location: Washo Reserve, South Carolina

Number of Trees: 500

In South Carolina, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has successfully preserved more than 330,000 acres since 1969. American Forests is working with TNC to plant 500 pond cypress trees across 50 acres in the Washo Reserve along Cypress Lake. This planting will greatly benefit the endangered wood stork that makes its home in the reserve. The trees will create successful nesting habitat for the wood stork and other wading birds and promote new cypress tree growth. This project will also engage the public by installing an educational kiosk along the lake’s nature trails for community members to learn about the restoration process and project details.
