Sept 2012 - June 2013 Gallatin National Forest

Sept 2012 - June 2013 Gallatin National Forest
Gallatin National Forest is in Montana, north of Yellowstone National Park.

If you received your tree between September 1st 2012 and June 30, 2013, your tree is a native Lodgepole pine, Douglas fir or Engelmann spruce, and it was one of 1604 trees planted in the early Summer of 2013.

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.

Your tree will help restore beauty and growth to the forest for years to come.
