Very Happy Holidays from

The Sugar Pine Foundation

As this year comes to a close, we celebrate an amazing 2018 and look forward to a new year filled with new plantings and new partnerships. With help from you, our partners, funders and volunteers, over 10,000 trees were planted this year and our success is a direct result of your contributions, grants and long standing community partnerships. Special thanks to all the helping hands who made that possible! 

We have met some amazing people this year and we are looking forward with excitement to 2019. We hope you will continue to support the Sugar Pine Foundation, one donation, one tree at a time, you can make a difference. In addition, you will be entered to win the water color painting Tiger Lilies by artist Valerie Cohen.

Wishing you a Very Merry Holiday Season!

Looking Ahead to 2019

More Resistant Trees

In 2019 we will be continuing our work restoring the Tahoe area with a healthy diverse forest.  We are always looking for new planting sites. This year we collected cones from western white pines at the top of Mt Rose highway. We will be testing them for blister rust resistance and hopefully be planting there in the near future. Help us preserve the white pine populations and the natural diversity of the Sierra's mixed conifer forest.

New Partners

We were very excited this year to be able to work with amazing volunteers at new planting sites. We were fortunate to be able to restore new areas in Sagehen, Waddle Ranch, Foresthill, Northstar, and Royal Gorge with Patagonia, Tahoe Oral surgery and Vail employees, the Auburn Kiwanis, Scouts of America and lots of student groups. We couldn't do that without the support of our sponsors: Bentley Foundation, Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation, Patagonia, Nevada Energy, Rose Foundation, One tree planted, Tahoe Truckee Airport and Fresh Air Clothing.

Burn Scar Restoration

Planting sugar pines and other native trees in fire scars helps restore our forest ecosystem, improve wildlife habitat and restore the beauty and vitality of many of Tahoe's recreation areas affected by devastating forest fires. In 2019, we will be working with our partners to ensure that the recent fire scars such as the Emerald, and the Little Valley fire scars are included in our forest restoration efforts. Join us for a satisfying day of forest stewardship work and digging in the dirt to plant seedlings!
