Klamath National Forest Fire Reforestation I

Year Planted: 2005
Trees Planted: 26,500
Location: California

Klamath National Forest, located in the upper reaches of California, is continuing reforestation efforts at five different fire sites, which commenced in 2004 with the help of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Klamath National Forest plans to restore 230 acres during this upcoming spring. The submitted proposal only focuses on those acres associated with wildfire and the Siskon Mine restoration. This initial planting includes acres on 4 fires (East, Larry, Stanza and Forks Fires) and replanting portions of 1 fire (Forks Fire). A total of 26,500 trees were planted on fire and mine associated acres. The vast majority of the burned areas from the five fires were successfully reforested in 2004. The planting in 2005 is for portions of the fire areas that have not been reforested to-date. The re-plant acres are portions that failed, therefore additional planting was required. In 2005 the Klamath National Forest partnered with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and American Forests to achieve its goal.


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