Sept 2012 - June 2013
Gallatin National Forest

Tree gifts dedicated between September 1st 2012 and June 30, 2013 were planted in the Summer of 2013 and are native Lodgepole pine, Douglas fir and Engelmann spruce.

Gallatin National Forest is in Montana, north of Yellowstone National Park.

In recent years fires have burned through thousands of acres in Gallatin, killing millions of trees and leaving large areas so devastated that the trees can't regenerate themselves.
