Student Planters’ Grove – Heritage Tree

45500 Wilson River Hwy
Tillamook, Oregon 97141


Between 1949 and 1973, an army of volunteers helped plant an estimated 72 million trees to reforest the Tillamook Burn-one of the largest forest replanting efforts in history. Here, in the area of Cedar Creek Flat, the new forest was planted entirely by school children from Tillamook, Forest Grove and Portland. Students arrived by the busload and were met by foresters who provided Douglas-fir seedlings, tools, and the supervision to "plant ’em to last" resulting in the legacy you see today.

Located at Tillamook Forest Center, 22 miles east of Tillamook on Hwy 6
