Our National Forests Urgently Need Trees
Record wildfire seasons in recent years have destroyed millions of trees in forests around the country. Many areas have burned so severely that replanting is necessary.
Yet much of the U.S. Forest Service budget has been diverted to simply fighting these massive fires, with much less funding left for replanting.
The Forest Service has identified a backlog of more than one million acres* of America's national forests that need to be replanted. And each year, with every wildfire, storm, or insect epidemic, the backlog steadily increases.
* Designated National Wilderness areas and areas that may regenerate naturally are not included in this backlog.
