2016 Restoration Projects

Pike National Forest

South Platte Ranger District

Project Highlights

  • April 2016 planting timeline
  • 20,000 trees funded by Enterprise
  • Revisiting a project that Enterprise supported in our first year of partnership (2006)
  • 5th year working on Pike National Forest, providing more than 350,000 trees to date

Ongoing efforts are being made to replant the more than 138,000 acres of Pike National Forest lost to the Hayman Fire of 2002. The newly planted trees will help to reestablish critical habitat and protect the Upper South Platte Watershed.

Bastrop State Park

Bastrop, TX

Project Highlights

  • November–February planting timeline
  • 250,000 trees funded by Enterprise
  • 4th year planting in Bastrop State Park
  • Planting our one millionth tree this year in Texas

In 2011, devastating wild fires destroyed more than 32,000 acres of land in central Texas. Bastrop State Park was badly affected by the fire, with 96 percent of the state park burned at high severity. We are working diligently on a five-year replanting effort to help bring back the loblolly trees unique to this area.

Goethe, Myakka and Etoniah Creek State Forests

Levy, Sarasota and Putnam Counties, FL

Project Highlights

  • 5th year planting in Florida State Forests
  • Now more than 1 million trees supported in the state of Florida

Work in these three state forests is focused on restoring longleaf and slash pine communities and critical Florida watersheds. These pines provide cover and a food source for the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker, in addition to serving as useful habitat for other wildlife.

Lake Superior State Forest

  • Enterprise has supported 8 different national forests in the state of California
  • Support for more than 2 million trees on federal lands in the state

Large portions of Lassen National Forest in California were burned at high severity in the 2012 Reading Fire. Because the high intensity of the fire left much of the land unable to naturally regenerate, our help is needed to return the area to its natural forested state.

Santa Fe National Forest

Jemez Ranger District

Project Highlights

  • July–August 2016 planting timeline
  • 20,000 trees funded by Enterprise
