Thank you everyone for participating in our One Tree Planted initiative. Attached is an update of our progress!
Good news, your trees have been planted in the United States - specifically in New Mexico!
Thanks to your support, a total of 6,710 trees have been planted in Lincoln National Forest as part of recovery efforts from the Scott Able fire back in 2000. Sometimes the land comes back naturally after forest fires, other times the damage is too severe and that's where reforestation really helps to kickstart the natural regeneration process.
A mix of Douglas-Fir, Ponderosa Pine, White Fir and Engelmann Spruce tree species were planted within the Sacramento Ranger District of the Forest.
The trees will provide habitat to forest dwelling wildlife and plants. They will also improve watershed stability, and enhance scenic qualities of the forest.
