During the summer of 2020, more than one million acres of trees on Oregon lands were burned. This was more than twice the amount of damage that Oregon has experienced in recent years.
We have set a goal of raising enough funds to plant at least ONE MILLION trees, to ensure that in the future, and for future generations, these burned areas will once again be lush and green!
Why should we replant after a fire? Trees provide the very necessities of life. They clear our air, protect our drinking water, create healthy communities and feed our souls. Our forests provide critical wildlife habitat, natural beauty and recreational opportunities. They sequester carbon, and help reduce soil erosion by stabilizing slopes and preventing landslides.
Depending on how much money is raised, we will work with the public land managers from the US Forest Service, Oregon Department of Forestry, Bureau of Land Management, Oregon Parks & Recreation, and the parks departments of Clackamas, Marion, Lane and Jackson counties to determine the greatest need and potential impact.
