Description: Restoring native plant communities is a key objective in the maintenance of healthy ecosystems. Opportunities have increased following recent wildfires. This paper describes the policy and history behind the reforestation and restoration programs in the Northern Region (Region 1) of the USDA Forest Service, which focused primarily on meeting the objectives in the National Fire Plan, Key Point 2, Rehabilitation and Restoration. The discussion continues with an overview of the rehabilitation efforts in response to nearly 13 million ac (5.3 million ha) of National Forest Lands that have burned in the Northern Region since 2000. Both conifer regeneration and the development and implementation of the native plants program are discussed, and project examples are provided.
