From six-inch seedlings to giant sequoias 150 feet tall, California’s trees are a precious resource, and their recovery after devastating wildfires is no small task. After putting out the flames, Cal Fire is also working to help restore forests. CBS13’s Elizabeth Klinge got a chance to go inside the effort at their reforestation center in Davis. Tree by tree, acre by acre, wildfires tore through California forestland, destroying timber from Tahoe to the coast. But as the smoke cleared and Mother Nature tries to heal, Calfire crews are still hard at work to give our future forests a head start. “Especially after a fire season like this fire season we now have millions more acres that are going to need to be reforested. Both on federal and private land,” said Calfire Staff Chief, Wildfire Resilience Stewart McMorrow.
