On October 22, 2015, we joined the US Forest Service in the San Gabriel Mountains to plant Jeffrey Pines in the highland watershed. Over the course of the morning, we were able to plant 150 saplings that will create a tree-lined area that will eventually become a camping and picnicking area. Reforestation is the natural or intentional restocking of existing forests and woodlands that have been depleted, and in this case the pine trees area is critical component in stabilizing the hillside and balancing the areas water table. Though southern California is experiencing a massive drought, this watershed provides 75% of the surrounding valley’s water.
