Year Planted: 2010 Trees Planted: 89,429 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 contributed to the bark beetle epidemics. Devastating wildfires have swept through parts of the mountains, in some places killing 100 % of the trees. This long-term Mountain Communities Wildfire ReLeaf Project will plant 98,000 trees while continuing 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.
