19th Annual Reforestation Project


19th Annual Reforestation Project

On  Friday, January 8th and Saturday, January 9th , Forest Unlimited will be planting approximately 1,300 redwood seedlings for reforestation and erosion control in a lovely community forest area in the hills west of Cazadero.  On each day, we will rendezvous at 8:15 a.m. in Monti Rio in the large Russian River Recreation Area parking lot on Bohemian Highway directly across the road from (west of) the Rio Theater.  We will carpool from there to the planting sites.  On each day we will plant from around 9:45-12:30 and from 1:30-4:15. 

The seedlings average about 16-inches in height (root ball included) and are not difficult to plant.  These trees will be protected from future logging.

All equipment and a free indoor lunch, including drinks and snacks, will be provided.  Vegetarian food will also be available to those who request it in advance.

To properly plan for this event, it is essential that you contact us and sign up for a date(s) of your choice.  To sign up and/or to ask any questions, contact Carl Wahl, Project Manager, at 874-9268 or  Further information on the rendezvous location, appropriate attire, etc. will be sent to all volunteers. This is a fun event, and supervised children are welcome.  

To date, this project has been responsible for the planting of over 26,000 trees in Sonoma County.

Forest Unlimited is a 20-year old 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation headquartered in Forestville.  Its mission is to protect, enhance, and restore the forests and watersheds of Sonoma County.
