As a result of a century of fire suppression in the US, forests in many areas are now dangerously overgrown. Coupled with the effects of climate change, this creates ideal conditions for megafires. For this project, we will be partnering with American Forests and the Oregon Department of Forestry.
With your support, we will be restoring the burned forest land in Oregon. A diverse range of species will be planted, including seeds that are adapted to withstand the changing climate. The trees being planted are carefully selected to represent the local ecosystem and assist with natural regeneration.
