Six Days, 25,000 Trees

Eight youth volunteers from the Nevada Conservation Corps planted 25,000 Jeffrey pines in a mere six days to restore a California fire-damaged forest owned by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and Alpine County. Even more impressive, for many, this was their first tree planting experience!

Witness their efforts for this 2013 Global ReLeaf project.

Colonel Herman?

“My parents live 30 minutes from The Big Tree, the lackluster name that St. Francisville, La., locals call the national champ baldcypress. Our family recently starting visiting the tree every Thanksgiving. Since The Big Tree is the largest tree east of the Sierra Nevadas, my wife decided he should be named Colonel Herman in honor of General Sherman.”
