Year Planted: 2009 Trees Planted: 154,265 Location: California
In the San Bernardino Mountains, 12 million trees are dead or dying due to six years of drought, which has triggered stress and bark beetle epidemics. Devastating wildfires have swept through parts of the mountains, in some places killing 100 percent of the trees. The long-term 'Mountain Communities Wildfire ReLeaf Project' will plant 125,000 trees while it continues to develop and implement a comprehensive reforestation program for these southern California Mountains. Partnering with American Forests are the Mojave Resource Conservation District and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
