Red Mountain and Sheep Trail Fire Reforestation and Wildlife Habitat Restoration

Year Planted: 2010
Trees Planted: 64,000
Location: Idaho

The Red Mountain Fires burned approximately 42,000 acres of land on the Lowman Ranger District in the Boise National Forest during 2006 and 2007. Following the recommendations of the Red Mountain Fire Rapid Assessment Report (2006) trees will be planted in areas chosen for their importance to the rehabilitation of the watershed and as wildlife habitat. A number of sensitive species in this region rely on this habitat, including the Northern goshawk and Wolverine, but the animal that has suffered the most from habitat loss is the lynx. This project plans to re-establish these sites with 60,000 Douglas-fir, Englemann spruce, and Lodgepole pine over 500 acres.


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