Oak and Native Tree Giveaway
Camp Fire Restoration Project and Butte County RCD invited Butte County fire survivors to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of the Camp Fire, by planting native trees to restore and heal our land post-fire. Over the course of three days (Nov. 7th, 8th and 9th) we gave away 2410 native tree saplings and other restoration materials for fire survivors, as well as providing education on how to replant trees in the burn scar. Our intention with this event is to not only provide resources and promote practical action to regenerate our lands, but also to promote hope and healing within our community.
Available tree species: Blue Oak, Black Oak, Redbud, Elderberry, Dogwood, Amelanchier (Juneberry or serviceberry), & Hollyleaf Cherry
This event was held in partnership with the Butte County RCD, Paradise Revival Festival, Paradise Community Guild, Janel Luke, and Trees for Little People.
We want to give a special THANK YOU to Trees for Little People for the donation of the blue oak saplings, American Forests and Salesforce for funding the black oaks and other native hardwoods, and North Valley Community Foundation’s Butte Strong Fund for funding CFRP!

Together, we are making a huge difference regenerating our forests and nourishing our community.
Thank you for following us in implementing this grand vision of creating a bio-regional hub and model for community-based habitat restoration. With your support, we can make this happen. Your donations and partnership give more people opportunities to be trained in ecosystem restoration and create new permaculture demonstration sites to heal and restore the land and lives affected by California’s deadliest wildfire.
Our collective action will create a sustainable and regenerative model with new systems for disaster response, resilient communities, and landscape restoration that inspire a culture shift.
What is the goal?
- To restore land in the areas affected by the devastating fire, create healthy ecosystems with sustainable local food sources, build fire safe homes and buildings, create green jobs, and teach local communities about ecosystem restoration.
