April 2015 - March 2016
Tahoe National Forest

Tree Gifts dedicated between April 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016 were planted in Tahoe National Forest in the early Summer of 2016.

Tahoe National Forest is in North Eastern California, on the border with Nevada. The American Fire burned 22,500 acres of trees there in 2013. Many of those acres need to be replanted to restore the land. Because wildlife depends on the forest’s trees, critical habitat protection, restoration, and soil erosion prevention are a pressing need in this area.
