Fremont-Winema National Forest
Replanting Our Nation’s Forests
Forest OverviewFremont-Winema National Forest is bordered by the Cascade Mountain Range and Crater Lake National Park on the west and the Klamath River Basin on the east. The forest is filled with extensive stands of ponderosa and lodgepole pine that grow throughout the 2.3 million acre forest in Southern Oregon.
More than ninety percent of the pine trees that had previously dominated this area have been lost to this destructive insect.
Fremont-Winema National Forest Needs Our Help
With your help, the 2012 planting project will be the first step in rehabilitating a 300,000-acre area which has been devastated by the mountain pine beetle epidemic. More than ninety percent of the pine trees that had previously dominated this area have been lost to this destructive insect. Due to the heavy loss of mature pine, most of the seed source for future natural regeneration in the area has also been lost. With the assistance of Foundation members and donors, this breathtaking landscape can become a sustainable and healthy ecosystem again.
