California 2019 - Redwood Valley Fire Restoration

Planting Location: Mendocino County

Project Description/Objective: This project will increase forest health by reintroducing conifer component to the burned landscape that would otherwise revert to hardwood dominated land due to basal sprouting. Reforestation activities will plant high-quality conifers. It will support biodiversity of tree species and understory herbaceous species that would be out-competed by brush without forest cover. Forest health and habitat improvements would impact a minimum of 700 acres. Restored watershed health and function will be achieved by adding native cover, reducing soil erosion, particularly after salvage harvesting.
