Employees from Zephyr Cove Resort, Spooner Summit Recreation and Lake Tahoe Cruises are partnering with the Sugar Pine Foundation to replant trees at Spooner Summit.
Sugar pine trees, the world’s largest species of pine with the longest cones, are dying from white pine blister rust, a nonnative invasive fungus. Originally they accounted or 25 percent of Lake Tahoe’s forests but now make up less than 5 percent of the forest composition.
On Oct. 17 from 10am-noon employees help restore the forests at Lake Tahoe by planting yearlings.
The event is open to the public. Interested people may contact email@example.com.
