March 2020 - Present Tahoe National Forest
If your tree gift or grove was dedicated between March 1, 2020 and the present, it was planted in Tahoe National Forest in 2020.
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.
Tahoe National Forest is in North Eastern California, on the border with Nevada. The North fire burned 1,000 acres there in 2018. 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.
The trees planted are native species to this particular forest: Ponderosa pine, Jeffery pine, Douglas fir, sugar pine and incense cedar.
Please see our photos and videos of the planting area and maps with directions below.
