Trees Planted: 142,650
Location: Idaho

In the summer of 2003 the Mile Post 59 Fire consumed over 8,000 acres of forest habitat. As a result of this Wildfire, 60% of the forestland is devoid of tree life. The area is within a National Forest watershed and borders the Clearwater River, which several communities depend on for water. The Clearwater River was used by the Lewis and Clark expedition and is part of our national heritage, as well as habitat for several populations of threatened or endangered species. Reforestation in this area would save the landscape, and maintain the water’s pristine quality. The Nez Perce Tribe partnered with American Forests to plant 142,000 trees on 430 acres of this wildfire stricken area. The regeneration effort will lead to improved water quality, wildlife habitat, and overall environmental health as well as provide future revenue and job opportunities to the tribe through timber harvest and management.
