Project Description:

The Sugar Pine Foundation is proposing the planting of 1000 Sugar pine and 1000 Jeffrey pine seedlings with community volunteers on 40 acres of public land within the Sagehen Experimental Forest near Truckee. Planting will take place in an old Ponderosa pine plantation originally intended for timber harvesting that is now slated for conservation and needs to be restored to historical tree species composition. The sugar pine seedlings we would plant are progeny of blister rust resistant seed trees in order to aid with general sugar pine restoration in the area.
