Gallatin National Forest
Replanting Our Nation’s Forests

Gallatin National Forest Needs Our HelpInsects, disease, and wildfires have all played a role in the loss of pristine forest land in Gallatin. The 2014 restoration project will focus on acres severely burned by the Madison Arm Fire and the Derby Fire. Between the two fires, more than 210,000 total acres burned. With your help, we can provide resources to begin planting lodgepole and ponderosa pine into areas that will not regenerate on their own.
