Year Planted: 2005 Trees Planted: 15,000 Location: California
The Gap Fire of 2001 burned approximately 2,450 acres of forest around the Tahoe National Forest and along I-80. The fire burned extremely hot and, as such, few trees of any size survived. AMERICAN FORESTS will plant approximately 15,000 ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, jeffrey pine, and Giant Sequoia in Onion Valley, approximately 6 miles off the I-80 Emigrant Gap exit.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
