If your tree gift or grove was dedicated between April 1, 2021 and January 31, 2022, your tree/s were planted in Angeles National Forest.
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, and big cone Douglas fir.
Please see our photos of the planting area and maps with directions below. Google map is here.
If you plan on visiting the trees, please see the info below. The best times to visit are between May-October.
