BENEFITING: Arbor Day Foundation
Planting 110,000 Jeffrey pine, sugar pine, and white fir trees will re-introduce these important native conifers where no viable seed source remains. The Sequoia National Forest contains a large number of unique ecological communities not found elsewhere. Included in these unique communities are many wildlife species dependent on mature forest habitat, including pacific fisher, spotted owls, and goshawk. Watershed restoration and protection is a major reason for establishing these areas to a forested condition after the Piute Fire. These new trees are critical for habitat protection, watershed protection and management, and to serve people with abundant recreation opportunities for decades to come.
We have raised the funding for all but 4,000 trees of our 110,000 tree goal.
We are hoping that the Crowdrise community can help us raise $1,000 which will plant 1,000 of the 4,000 remaining trees.
Every dollar plants a tree:)
Thank you so much to everyone helping to get these trees in the ground.
