a tree for every order
refresh the planet

Since 2008, in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, we have planted a tree for every order placed
to help restore critical watersheds and wildlife habitats destroyed by fire. We call it The Gift of Shade®.

Where are

Umpqua National Forest, Oregon

The 2015 Stouts fire burned 14,402 acres on the Umpqua National Forest in steep and rugged terrain. Since the fires, this watershed has experienced high levels of sedimentation in the streams that flow out of the heavily burned areas, landslides, and other effects from the loss of vegetation. The main purpose for replanting is to restore the watershed to a suitable forest condition as quickly as possible. This will not only help the animals that call the forest their home, but also all those benefitting from Umpqua’s watershed.

Klamath National Forest, California

Multiple fires from 2013 to 2017 have taken their toll on Klamath National Forest. The damage has affected not only critical habitat for the threatened Northern Spotted Owl but also habitat for threatened and endangered Coho Salmon. And due to the large burn area in some regions of the forest, seed sources are minimal to non-existent. Reforestation efforts will shorten the time frame for establishing forest habitat for the Northern Spotted Owl, protect aquatic habitat for Coho Salmon, provide slope stability, and reduce potential long-term erosion.
