By planting trees in areas severely burned by the fire, Woodbridge says the Forest Service hopes to speed up mature forest growth by giving trees a head start when competing with brush growth.  You can learn more about donating a tree by going online to ArborDay.org.  Planting is scheduled to start in April.
