In 2010 High Ranch Nursery and Wildlands Inc. donated over 1,000 trees to Placer Land Trust. All of these native trees are in desperate need of a home on one of our Preserves. We need your help to make sure they survive!
You can adopt your tree online at our general Donations page. Just enter $10 and “adopt-a-tree” in the comments section. The trees thank you!
Adopt an oak or other native tree
Ten dollars will help to ensure that one native tree will be planted and cared for on a Placer Land Trust preserve. Your donation helps us provide enclosures to keep grazing animals from eating saplings and water during the first few dry months.
Local donations, local trees, local benefits
Oak trees are an integral part of the Foothill ecosystem. Trees provide many environmental benefits including carbon sequestration, erosion preventions, wildlife habitat, and aesthetic beauty. Additionally, blue oak woodlands are among the most diverse ecosystems in California.
Riparian habitats, the trees and vegetation around the floodplains of rivers and streams, are equally important for maintaining the quality of life in Placer County. Although riparian areas make up only a small portion of total land area, they support hundreds of fish and wildlife species. Unfortunately, human activities have destroyed much riparian habitat over the last 150 years making them a high priority for restoration. You can help! Many trees that need to be adopted are riparian vegetation and will be planted in riparian areas.
You can help plant your tree too!
Please visit this page or our Calendar for announcements of future planting days. We would love volunteer help when we plant our new groves. Include your email address when you make your donation, and let us know if you want more information. We can send you updates as new trees are planted.
