BUTTE COUNTY, Calif.- People in the community came together to replant hundreds of trees in the Camp Fire footprint on Sunday morning.

The project aims to not only restore the forest but also protect it from future fires.

Will Tupen lives in Auburn, this weekend he drove to Concow to help replant trees. He says, "This is actually my first time seeing the damage here, it’s definitely saddening to see. But this is a good opportunity to contribute for what happened last year with the Camp Fire."

Volunteers planted 400 Black Oak Trees near Granite Ridge, an area that was severely damaged during the fire. 

Wolfy Rougle, a coordinator for The Butte County Resource Conservation District, helped organize Sunday's event. She says, "Black Oak Trees are very fire resilient but the fire was pretty severe here and we did lose some Black Oak Trees so we are trying to get those back on the landscape."

Rougle says Sunday's project was funded by the non-profit organization, "One Tree Planted" and The California Native Plant Society. 

If you want to help replant trees, there will be another gathering in Paradise on Saturday, February 8th.
