Reforestation Program

Every year in January Forest Unlimited plants approximately 1600 redwood seedlings in locations protected from logging.   We commonly have the help of 100 volunteers,

Forest Unlimited thanks all the volunteers for the many successful plantings over the years to help complete our mission to protect, enhance, and restore the forests and watersheds of Sonoma County.  Participants are helping to fight climate change.  Forest Unlimited has been organizing volunteers to plant redwood and oak seedlings on protected properties throughout Sonoma County for well more than a decade.  Volunteers enjoy seeing forestland rarely viewed by those other than their owners.  You can sign up as a volunteer tree planter by emailing our Reforestation Manager, Harlie Ranking at
