Forest Fire Recovery
OneTreePlanted's Forest Fire Recovery planting project aims to restore lands that have been degraded by forest fires.
OneTreePlanted partners on the ground will determine the most appropriate species of tree and shrubs. They only plant native tree species that will restore the local ecosystem, re-establish wildlife habitat, and reduce the likelihood of future fires.
We chose this project because forest fires are increasing in size and severity, damaging vital ecosystems and creating a need for millions of trees. With so much fire damage, reforestation is essential to catalyze the environmental recovery process. The trees are carefully planted to prevent invasive species from colonizing burn scars and restore quality habitat for native biodiversity.
Around the world, OneTreePlanted are planting trees in areas that have been severely affected by forest fires and aren't able to recover a healthy ecosystem on their own. These trees will be planted in places like British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Mexico, Bhutan, and more to help support habitats, reforest lands, and create a positive impact for generations to come.
