After wildfires destroyed approximately 300,000 acres of Gallatin National Forest back in 2006 and 2007, Rain Bird felt the need to reach out.
Located in south-central Montana, the Gallatin National Forest suffered a great loss, and the Arbor Day Foundation, in conjunction with funds donated from Rain Bird, planted a thousand trees.
“Rain Bird’s contribution to our efforts will help benefit people for many generations to come,” says Nick Kauffman, corporate partnership manager for the Arbor Day Foundation.
Trees that were planted in the area included Douglas firs, Ponderosa pines and Whitebark pines. The Arbor Day Foundation spearheaded efforts to plant these trees at Gallatin National Forest in June.
