Wildfire ReLeaf Fund Activated for California

Article excerpt

With wildfires burning more than 470,000 acres in California, AMERICAN FORESTS announced it was launching a wildfire ReLeaf Fund for California, seeking to double the money it already had to reforest burned parts of the state.

Earlier this year the state of California announced AMERICAN FORESTS would receive nearly $3 million in tree-planting money as part of the $10 million settlement of a lawsuit between ConocoPhillips and the state.

AMERICAN FORESTS announced it was forming a task force to determine where to plant the trees and the best species to locate there.

The task force is headed up by Erik Oldar, with the Forest Health Program of CALFIRE. Also serving on the committee are Mike Landram, of the U.S. Forest Service; former AMERICAN FORESTS board member Kevin Daugherty of ESRI; Nancy Hughes of California Urban Forests Council; and youth representatives from Tree Musketeers.
