Tahoe National Forest
Replanting Our Nation’s Forests
Forest OverviewLocated in the north-central region of the Sierra Nevada Range in northeastern California, Tahoe National Forest’s rivers, peaks, and dense forest make it one of the most popular recreation sites in the United States. No matter the season, Tahoe promises plenty of outdoor fun. In the winter, visitors can downhill ski on the forest’s slopes or venture down the numerous snowmobile and cross-country skiing trails. In the summer, hiking, biking, and equestrian trails lead to the forest’s many rivers and lakes and stunning mountaintop views.
Tahoe National Forest Needs Our HelpIn 2013, the American Fire raged through the forest, burning 22,500 acres of trees. At least 7,300 acres of forest need to be replanted quickly in order to restore and preserve the Tahoe National Forest land. Reintroducing trees in the burn areas is an important step toward reducing soil erosion and restoring habitat for area wildlife such as black bears, bald eagles, osprey and spotted owls. With the help of our members and supporters, we can begin to make a positive difference throughout this National Forest.
