Catastrophic wildfires have recently destroyed millions of acres of Oregon forests. These unnatural fires leave hostile conditions for forest regeneration, and deprive us of a massive capacity to sequester climate-changing carbon.
Today over a cold Worthy beer we discussed with the Governor a Worthy Garden Club initiative to plant a million trees on Oregon burned lands, accelerating the restoration of habitat and putting these lands back into action as carbon sequestering, growing forests.
The Governor liked our plan, noting that it was similar to what was done after the catastrophic Tillamook Burn over 80 years ago when school kids and volunteers went out and planted trees, restoring the charred landscape.
