Colorado’s high-country watersheds supply fresh water to 19 US states and Mexico. The same forests impacted by insects, disease and wildfire provide sustainable water supplies. Planting trees here will help to protect this critical resource, reforest areas burned by wildfires, enhance wildlife habitat, and reduce soil erosion. Our amazing reforestation partners work with land managers and private landowners to accomplish effective forestry practices and reduce the risk of severe wildfire and post-fire flooding.
To maximize the impact, our partner will determine the most appropriate species of tree to plant, depending on the time of year. Popular species in Colorado include Pine, Aspen, and Oak.
