Chippewa National Forest

Chippewa National Forest is nestled into the heart of northern Minnesota — a beautiful blend of ecological wonder and cultural significance. Within the forestland are three of the 10 largest lakes in the state, thousands of historic and archeological sites, and 250 different species of wildlife. A large portion of the forest also stretches through the Leech Lake Indian Reservation, home to the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, one of six bands comprising the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.

The Need for Trees

This National Forest has faced many issues in recent history, including strong wind events, insects, and disease. The result is an acute need for reforestation to reestablish native tree species and improve forest stand resilience for the future.

Your generous support can make a real impact on Chippewa National Forest through tree planting. Replanting efforts will restore native tree cover, provide essential habitat for area wildlife including the American bald eagle, and ensure the forest can thrive in a changing climate.

Bootleg Fire Recovery in Oregon

The Klamath Basin encompasses 12,000 square miles of southern Oregon and northern California – home to wildlife refuges, preserves, National Forest lands, private lands, and a network of lakes and rivers, including the Klamath River. This watershed area hosts an array of terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity, supports a population of more than 100,000 residents, and holds historical and cultural significance for Indigenous communities.

The Need for Trees

In 2021, the Bootleg Fire devastated 413,765 acres of forest in southern Oregon, including the Klamath Basin. Given the importance of the forest in this area, it is in great need of restoration.

With your generous support, evergreen trees can be planted to help rebuild the tree canopy lost in the fire. Replanting efforts here will provide a home for bald eagles, big game, and small mammals while also playing a critical role in restoring water quality in the Klamath River.

Upper Altamaha in Georgia

Longleaf pine, once the dominant tree species in the South, has now dwindled to cover only small patches of land. That loss of ecosystem has been devastating to the nearly 600 animal and plant species that depend on it.

The Need for Trees

Through a partnership with The Nature Conservancy, longleaf and shortleaf pines will be planted across private and public lands in Georgia. This work will reduce forest fragmentation and protect endangered and threatened wildlife including the red-cockaded woodpecker, indigo snake, and gopher tortoise.
