Freds Fire Restoration

Year Planted: 2006
Trees Planted: 18,950
Location: California

In 2004 the Freds & Power Fires burned a total of 24,693 acres, 18,211 acres on Eldorado National Forest. Fires ravaged over ten spotted owl protected activity centers, two northern goshawk sites, and adjacent riparian areas. Forest restoration work began in 2005 planting 785 acres on both sites with Ponderosa pine, Jeffrey pine, sugar pine, white fir, red fir, and incense cedar. In 2006 American Forests partnered with the Eldorado National Forest to continue restoration, planting 170,340 bare root seedlings. The projects will reestablish forestlands in protected spotted owl activity centers and surrounding riparian areas.


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