Tree Watering

Join us every Tuesday this summer as we go and water the tree seedlings we planted. We will meet at the TJ Maxx parking lot and caravan to a different planting site every time. Bring a camelback and/or any watering can you have full of water. If you show up 3 times or more you get a sugar pine hat! Also we are looking to partner with local breweries and go for a drink afterwards.

How you helpSponsoring, voluteering or contributing to our work to protect Tahoe’s sugar pines shows our 1,300+ members and the greater Reno-Tahoe community your commitment to keeping our forests and environment healthy and beautiful.
About usWe search for pines resistant to blister rust and climb them to collect their cones. The cones go the US Forest Service to test for major gene resistance to blister rust. Each year, we harvest more cones from resistant trees so we can plant the next generation. Every spring and fall, hundreds of community volunteers and schoolchildren help us with plantings. Our plantings, events, and educational outreach inspire environmental stewardship throughout the community. As our seedlings grow, we regularly monitor their health to help inform future restoration programs.
