#PrintReleaf Certifies First #Reforestation Project in the United States

PrintReleaf Certifies First Reforestation Project in the United States.

Located in South Dakota, the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is an Oglala Lakota Native American Reservation encompassing 3,468.85 square miles. It is the eighth-largest reservation in the United States. Oglala Lakota is larger than Delaware and Rhode Island combined. Laser Line invites your company to take part in the reforestation of our planet.

Trees, Water & People works directly with the Oglala Lakota Native Americans to actively combat a wide-range of environmental challenges, exasperated by a rapidly changing climate, lands rights issues, and poverty.  Greening the landscape to combat climate change through carbon sequestration and developing income opportunities are paramount to the Pine Ridge Project.

Below is a profile and description of the Pine Ridge project. This includes the environmental and social value being delivered at a ground level.  All PrintReleaf end-users now have the option to login and subscribe to the Pine Ridge project.

Project Goals

  • Double the number of trees planted from 15,000 to about 30,000 in 2017. Continue to build in the years ahead as funding allows. There is a lot of land within two historical fire areas (totaling 20,000 acres) to plant. This allows for room to expand in the years ahead.
  • Create a sustainable reforestation program on the Pine Ridge Reservation, including training a local workforce of Native Americans to care for and plant tree seedlings.
  • Reforest wildlife habitat zones within two fire areas to jumpstart species return and restoration within the fire areas.
