Our Mission

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.

Our Vision

Everything is connected. Protecting precious resources, such as water and wildlife, is directly related to the types of trees and the overall health of the forest. By using our Targeted Treatment Process, 106 Reforestation addresses a number of issues which affect the viability of a property for humans and wildlife. We take an exhaustive, educated, and custom-tailored approach to each property in order to increase aspen regeneration, reduce water consumption, mitigate wildfires, invigorate wildlife, and make the land more usable for humans, without compromising the sustainability of the whole.

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.

Founder, CEO, Conservationist and Steward of the Forest.

"I started developing the Targeted Treatment Process in 2008. I am proud of the accomplishments and progress that we made in such a short period of time. Our process compliments and multiplies many desirable forest management objectives, and the process can be done safely and at landscape scale."
