Name of Project: Recovering from a Wildfire in Lassen National Forest

Number of Trees to be Planted: 95,000

Directly Benefits: Wildlife

Location: California

Year: 2011


  • Reforest 395 acres
  • Provide wildlife habita
  • Improve water quality


Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the USDA Forest Service to replant areas of the Lassen National Forest, named after pioneer Peter Lassen, who mined and ranched in the area in the 1850s.

The area has recently been damaged by numerous wildfires. This project will reestablish forest cover in areas that burned at high intensity, and could take decades to recover naturally. Planting trees will accelerate the ecosystem’s restoration and improve local wildlife habitats and water quality.


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