Wyetheia angustifola, commonly known as the California compassplant, is in full bloom in Big Meadow on the Scott River Headwaters property in northern California. Alpine meadows, such as this one, play a big role in forest ecosystems by storing groundwater that replenishes streams during the hot summer months and providing an important source of forage and habitat for rare and threatened species. EFM is proud to be partnering with local conservation organizations to restore and protect these meadows so that they can continue to provide these important services.
There are many ways to avoid or reduce carbon emissions; however, climate-smart forestry is unique in that it can both avoid carbon emissions through harvest reductions and store carbon through tree growth, removing it from the atmosphere. Stored carbon is increased by leaving more trees in place in reserves, by retaining trees during harvests for habitat, seed provision, and soil protection, and allowing trees to grow longer between harvests.
