April 2021 - Present Angeles National Forest

If your tree gift or grove was dedicated between April 1, 2021 and the present, your tree/s will be planted in Angeles National Forest in the Summer of 2021.

Angeles National Forest is in Southern California, in the San Gabriel Mountains north of Los Angeles. In recent years Angeles National Forest has been hit hard by several wildfires, including the Sand Fire which burned over 41,000 acres, the Powerhouse Fire which burned over 30,000 acres, and the Lake Fire which burned over 31,000 acres.

Many of those 100,000+ 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. The trees that will be planted are native species to this particular forest: Coulter pine, ponderosa pine, big cone Douglas fir and grey pine.

Please sign up for tree updates above and check back here in the Summer to see baby tree photos, tree location maps and directions.

If you plan on visiting the trees, please see the info below. The best times to visit are between May-October, and for this planting location we recommend a four-wheel drive vehicle or at least a car with good ground clearance.
