Reforestation is the process of replanting trees in order to maintain healthy forests for generations to come. Today’s foresters plant five trees for every one that is harvested. In fact, in California, we grow many more trees than are harvested.

  • Reforestation has about a 90 percent success rate due to careful selection and planning efforts.

  • Foresters work to maintain a healthy and diverse population of trees to sustain California’s diverse wildlife and overall forest health.

  • Reforestation helps ensure future Californians will have healthy forests that supply wood products, clean air, water, wildlife habitat and jobs in our communities.

  • California foresters plant more than 35 million tree seedlings every year.

  • Reforestation combats climate change by increasing carbon storage.
