Save the Sugar Pines!

Sugar pines are the world's largest species of pine with the longest cones - and they are dying from white pine blister rust, a non-native, invasive fungus. Though they historically accounted for 25% of Tahoe's forests, sugar pines now make up less than 5% of the forest composition!

Our Mission

We are dedicated to saving Tahoe's sugar pines and other white pines from blister rust by educating and involving the local community in hands-on forest stewardship.
