American Forests' California program has two main focal areas within the field of reforestation: holistic postfire implementation and strategic efforts to address pinch points in the reforestation pipeline. Our work includes postfire reforestation on the Eldorado and Sequoia national forests, a reforestation-specific workforce development program and coordinated, cross-boundary efforts to increase nursery infrastructure, seed supply and workforce.
