To Protect and Preserve Our Natural Resources
By implementing on-the-ground, landscape-scale treatments to reduce the threat of massive wildfires while actively restoring and rebalancing high-risk forested lands. The protection and preservation work we accomplish TODAY is the conservation and restoration of our resources and wildlands TOMORROW.
Why the name 106?
106 Reforestation is dedicated to the 106 acres of Pando, the Trembling Giant
One of the world’s oldest and most massive living organisms is a grove of quaking aspens in the Fish Lake National Forest in Utah. When the Pando Clone was discovered, scientists named it with a Latin word that means “I spread.” An aspen clone starts with a single seed and spreads by sending up new shoots from the expanding root system. These shoots become trees that are genetically identical.
Pando is located about one mile southwest of Fish Lake on State Highway 25, and is believed to be the largest organism ever found at nearly 13 million pounds. The clone spreads over 106 acres, consisting of over 50,000 individual trees.
