Forest Unlimited is gearing up for our annual redwood tree planting next January 2022. So it is time to take stock of our January 2021 planting.
Our 2021 tree planting event took place at the Jenner Headlands Preserve the weekend of Jan. 9th & 10th (Sat. & Sunday). We planted redwood seedling on property that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is maintained by the The Wildlands Conservancy. We also planted a private parcel on Coleman Valley Road that placed a conservation easement on the land. Due to the drought, we scheduled a watering event for these trees in summer.
We are so thankful for the 40 volunteers that helped us plant redwoods and restore our Sonoma County forests. We are looking forward to another planting, and expecting 2022 to be our biggest yet. If you would like to add your name to our volunteer planters list contact our Reforestation Manager Harlie Cruickshank.
We will have more details and confirm start and stop times closer to the date. Please add the event to your calendar, and we will keep you posted! Since this is a private event, sign-ups will be required in order to confirm the number of participants. Sign-up contact information will be released soon. Thank you for your patience!
Our 2020 tree planting took place on a private property in Occidental where we planted about 900 redwood seedlings and at the Madeleine Sone Wildlife Preserve in Sebastopol where we planted another 500 trees.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has until June 30, 2020, to restructure. If it doesn’t accomplish this, Governor Newsom has threatened that the state will take over the utility. So far PG&E’s restructuring plan favors shareholders and would raise debt and equity. But other competing groups also have plans for restructuring and takeover: big equity funds, bondholders, and municipalities offering to buy PG&E. One way or the other, ratepayers are going to be on the hook. Read more about these plans in The Economist article here.

Join us for our annual tree planting event as we come together to plant redwood seedlings in the forests of Sonoma County. This year we will be planting in two locations, one on Saturday, January 4th and the other on Sunday, January 5th. We have confirmed that Sunday’s planting will be at the Madeleine Sone Wildlife Preserve located on Grandview Road in Sebastopol.
Last year, we were able to plant 1,400 trees on Wildwood Conservation Foundation and Retreat Center in Guerneville thanks to the help of our wonderfully dedicated volunteers even though it rained both days. If the weather does not cooperate sufficiently, the event is subject to change to the following weekend, Saturday, January 11th and Sunday January 12th.
If you would like to participate in the tree planting event, please email our Reforestation Coordinator, Harlie Cruickshank. We look forward to planting with you!
