Name of Project: Elk Complex Fire
Location: Klamath National Forest, CA
Number of Trees Planted: 477,200
In Northwest California, American Forests will be teaming with the U.S. Forest Service to plant 477,200 trees across 2,651 acres. The plantings will cover a handful of areas, including Siskiyou Wilderness Area and Crapo Creek north of Forks of Salmon — both of which were severely affected by wildfires. This project will provide multiple benefits to local watersheds, scenery, recreation and wildlife. In particular, this forest restoration will improve habitat for threatened and endangered species such as Coho and Chinook salmon, steelhead trout and the California spotted owl.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
