Description: Approximately 40 miles west of Denver, CO sits the Hayman burned area. This 100,000+ acre area is in need of soil stabilization and reforestation following the affects of the largest wildfire in the states recorded history. These trees will not only help mitigate the effects of flooding and erosion, but will also serve as future seed sources for natural regeneration, help enhance recreation experiences in the area, and help expedite the recovery of forested habitat for a variety of native species.
