NEW Tree Donor Program from Black Forest Together

Black Forest Together (BFT) has initiated its Tree Donor and Recipient Program. One of the objectives of the BFT Recovery Program is to assist the landowners who lost trees in the June 2013 Black Forest Fire in replacing their trees through the development and management of the BFT Tree Donor and Recipient Program.  This Program matches landowner donors with those landowners requesting replacement trees.  Visit our website for more information!

If you have an interest in purchasing these commercial quality trees, please contact the BFT Resource Center at 495-2445. Payment must be made before delivery of trees and recipients must be willing to assist in preparation of transplant sites.
