As our 2016 American Forests conservation campaign comes to a close, we profile a powerful reforestation cause in the heavily burned areas our home state of Washington near Mt. Adams. Read more below. —LYA Editor

Location: Mt Adams Ranger District, Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Washington

Named after the first director of the US Forest Service, the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Washington covers 1.3 million acres in the southern part of the state. It is home to the famous Mt. St. Helens National Volcano Monument. But in the eastern part of the forest, the lesser-known Mt. Adams district includes the second-highest mountain in the state (behind Mount Rainier) and three substantial wilderness areas.

Fires struck the district in 2008, 2012, and 2015, which burned 77,000 acres in total. Of these, 10,200 acres burned intensely enough to be completely deforested, leaving them with little or no ability to naturally reseed. This project will plant 236,000 ponderosa pine, Western larch, Douglas fir, and rust resistant western white pine to 236 acres of the most severely burned areas.

The bulk of this planting will occur in places reserved for roadless areas and mature forest stands. That combination means that the trees planted here will most likely stand for generations, providing important carbon sequestration and watershed services, as well as prime habitat for the northern spotted owl.

    I had an exceptional shopping experience at your store in Santa Rosa California Santa Rosa Mall. I did find the pants I wanted and the young man who helped me was great. Unfortunately I don’t have his name but he was working around noon-1pm Wed 10/19/16. I don’t think it was special service I think he does the same thing with every one who comes in the store

    Thank you for hiring him

    I bought 400.00 worth of clothing. When I asked about shipping and they told me a day to ship it was 1-2 days, when told the that their ad said free shipping the rep told me shipping would be 7-10 days. Real nice ,if you get free shipping your last,I am going wait unti the holidays and I am Going to VOMET this all over social media. What a rotten thing to do to a customer..

    I purchased a pair of womens Ellensburg loafers, after worn just two days the stitching came lose on both shoes even though they were not tight on me. I called CS and was told I had to pay to return them. Also when I first purchased them on line I was supposed to get free shipping, I didn’t so I called CS and they said they would refund the shipping to my PayPal account, they didn’t do that either. I just called CS to ask about these issues and was hung up on. Rude & lying CS, and lousy products, I will never order from EB again.
