The Best Time to Plant a Tree is TODAY

Donate today to help keep California's Forests alive!

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb

As the above quote states, planting trees is an investment that everyone benefits from. Trees supply clean air, water, wildlife habitats, jobs in our communities, and wood products. Trees absorb and store carbon into their trunks, roots and limbs — and they do this for their entire life, which combats climate change.

Reforestation is the process of replanting trees in order to maintain healthy forests for generations to come. Foresters work to maintain a healthy and diverse population of trees to sustain diverse wildlife and overall forest health.

There is a great need for reforestation all over the world, but the number of dead trees in California’s forests dramatically increased in just one year. The latest survey from the United States Forest Service revealed that 26 million trees have succumbed to drought, a devastating bark beetle infestation, and hotter temperatures in 2015, but the number has increased even more with the amount of forest fires in 2016 and 2017. That brings the number of trees that have died in the Sierra Nevada to 66 million since 2010.

For a state already in the throes of fire season, the discovery of a 65 percent increase in the number of dead trees within its forests is a troubling sign. BUT YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! :)
