What’s ReTree all about?
In 2010 the idea of ReTree Colorado won a National Geographic and SunChips contest for a $20,000 grant. The goal was to plant 20,000 trees to help replace the loss from the Pine Beetle Epidemic, and an annual was born.   In the years following, we have chosen to focus on quality over quantity for the success and survival of our trees.  We plant 2500-4000 trees annually with the help of hundreds of volunteers.   Locations of plantings vary based on needs of the forest, and we have planted at the following locations over the years: Emerald Mountain, Spring Creek Trail, The Sanctuary, Steamboat Ski Area/Mt Werner, Stagecoach State Park, Steamboat Lake State Park, Soda Creek and Strawberry Park Elementary Schools, and in the town of Oak Creek.
