With your help, Midland Radio's conservation efforts are making an impact after wildfires have burned portions of California.
Learn more about Midland Radio's partnership with One Tree Planted.
One Tree Planted is a nonprofit organization on a mission to make it simple for anyone to lend their hand to the environment by planting trees.
The organization's projects span the globe. Local communities and knowledgeable experts help with the projects in order to create an impact for nature, people and wildlife.
According to One Tree Planted, reforestation helps rebuild forests after fires and floods, provides jobs for social impact, and restore biodiversity.
Many of One Tree Planted's projects have overlapping objectives, creating a combination of benefits that contribute to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
On multiple occasions in 2022, Midland Radio donated one tree per order placed on its website. These efforts were part of Midland Radio's goals to give back to the environment to mark Earth Day and Giving Tuesday.
With your help, throughout 2022, Midland Radio donated 3,866 trees.
Because of this, One Tree Planted was able to plant 217,000 trees in order to restore 202 hectares of land in Tehama County.
California is known for its woodlands, with 33 million acres of diverse forests. These forests are responsible for providing us with recreation, wildlife habitats, and jaw-dropping scenery.
Unfortunately, wildfires have decimated California forests, impacting millions of acres across the state.
According to One Tree Planted, CAL FIRE estimates over 4.3 million acres burned in 2020 and over 2.5 million burned in 2021. Due to this, One Tree Planted said hundreds of millions of trees must be restore.
"Trees play a vital role in maintaining the liveliness of California communities. Planting trees here will help restore California's forests, so that we can continue to enjoy their natural beauty for many years to come. As these trees grow, they will produce ecological benefits such as habitat restoration and erosion control, improved vegetation and help reduce the risk of catastrophic fires and floods in the region," One Tree Planted said.
