School Fire-Bear Restoration Project

Year Planted: 2006
Trees Planted: 58,870
Location: Oregon

563 acres of the Dry Cummings watershed burned during the 2006 School Fire. 176 acres are in a dedicated old growth area. The entire watershed area provides winter habitat for Elk. The planting of ponderosa pine and western larch will protect habitat for the endangered bulltrout and steelhead, restoring the watershed to Cummings Creek as well as Elk winter range habitat. American Forests will partner with the Umatilla National Forest to plant over 55,000 seedlings in 2006.


This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
