Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to restore areas within the Kootenai National Forest, which extends along the Canadian border in Montana and Idaho. Kootenai National Park is approximately three times the size of Rhode Island.

The planting area has been damaged by bark beetles which bore into tree trunks and lay eggs in the inner layers. This project will plant a variety of tree species to increase the overall diversity of the forest, thereby helping the forest to recover more quickly from the damage and increase resilience. Increasing forest cover will also provide habitat for the forest’s wildlife.


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