Plumas National Forest

Forest Overview

The magnificence of Plumas National Forest spans more than 1 million acres of northern California in the Northern Sierra Nevada. Its fresh air and majestic views draw urban and rural visitors seeking nature’s serenity.

The Need for Trees

A series of lighting strikes triggered the Antelope Complex Fire on July 5, 2007, which burned nearly 23,000 acres of Plumas’ timber in less than a week. The Moonlight Fire struck just two months later, destroying 65,000 forest acres and requiring more than three weeks to contain.

What We Are Doing

With your support, we are helping replant 5,357 acres of Plumas National Forest with 600,000 trees. In the spring of 2010, Douglas-fir, red and white firs, and incense cedars began being planted alongside ponderosa pine, sugar pine, and Jeffrey pine trees. These new trees will help prevent soot and soil runoff into Plumas’ precious water supplies. And, as they grow, they will help reestablish vital habitat, restore the watershed that supplies many of California’s citizens.
