Under a conservation agreement, the forest service will do the planting, using your donation together with federal funds, and will provide to the plantation the same protection from fires, insects and disease given other forested areas. The plantations are a part of the regular national forest reforestation program planted on burned-over and brush covered areas which are potentially productive timber lands. Planting sites are selected by the supervisor of each national forest. These plantations provide soil protection, watershed protection, soil stabilization, future timber as well as beauty and shade for recreation. A contribution of $68 fills a one-acre area with new seedlings.The San Juan Garden Club has donated over $500 to help reforest the burned hillsides in the Cleveland National Forest.
