Sugar Pine Foundation

The Sugar Pine Foundation is partnering with Tahoe Donner Forestry to conduct a tree planting as a part of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative attempt to set a world record from 9-11:30am on May 20 at Tahoe Donner in the old Donner Ridge Fire scar.

Together with 40 groups across North America we will plant an estimated 200,000 trees in one hour! Tahoe Sugar Pine Foundation will be planting 200+ western white pines at Tahoe Donner.

Meet at 15024 Glacier Way off Skislope in Truckee. There is a parking lot on the left that ends with a gate. We will carpool from there, 10 min up a dirt road. Bring a 4WD, if you have one.

Bring a full water bottle, hiking shoes, sunscreen and a hat.Take advantage of this opportunity to get involved in forest restoration and be part of this world record attempt.

E-mail Martin at If you have any questions call Maria at 650-814-9565.

Join us and get your name Guinness World Record Book!  Participants will receive a personalized Guinness World Record participation certificate once the record has been confirmed. Moreover, you will be helping to restore the forest in a fire scar and in particular western white pines which are plagued by a non-native invasive fungus called white pine blister rust. The seedlings we will be planting are the progeny of naturally blister rust resistant trees and many will carry the gene that will protect them from the rust. Taking part is easy and fun! We will have prizes for most trees planted and other categories.
