After huge wildfires destroyed vast areas of California's forests, trees must be replanted to provide the native wildlife a home and recapture the CO₂ released into the atmosphere.
Forest fire restoration
As a dry, windy and hot region California will often experience wildfires from spring to late autumn that deal a reasonable amount of damage. Nature is normally able to recover from these naturally occurring fires however the number and intensity has grown in recent times. Climate change causes more extreme weather, making wildfires occur more often and fanned by stronger winds these fires grow bigger and out of control.
Trees are constantly removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it in their wood, leaves and roots but when a wildfire destroys a forest this CO₂ is released back into the atmosphere making the situation worse. It is important that these trees are re-planted - not only to recapture the carbon dioxide that was released into the atmosphere but also to rebuild the homes and food lost by the native wildlife.
We choose to plant local trees (Ponderosa Pine, Sugar Pine, White Fir, Douglas-fir, Giant Sequoia) to try and restore these forests back to their true greatness.
