Celebrate Trees

              "...Make it Green” and “Arbor Day Foundation” are planting a tree in Plumas National Forest. With your support, we are helping reforest Plumas National Forest with as much trees as possible. In the spring of 2010, Douglas-fir, red and white firs, and incense cedars will be planted alongside ponderosa pine and sugar pine trees. These new trees will help prevent soot and soil runoff into Plumas’ precious water supplies..."

The Plumas National Forest is located in Northern California and thousands of acres burned in 2007.  Seems like quite a beneficial project, more info can be found here.

Thanks for sharing.
