Basics
This project aims to restore sugar pines in key locations in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Sugar pines are native trees plagued by a non-native invasive fungus called blister rust and their numbers have decreased dramatically. Volunteers and field crews plant sugar pine seedlings progeny of blister rust resistant trees in order to restore their numbers to historical forest composition.
