Climate change is making wildfires more frequent and more severe. As forests are having a hard time recovering on their own, Mast is a one-stop shop for reforestation, providing seed, seedlings, planting, and carbon financing for landowners affected by wildfires. All services are provided at no upfront cost to landowners, whether they're families, companies, or public agencies.
Mast operates the largest tree seed bank west of the Mississippi and has the capacity to grow more than 30 million seedlings each year — this includes the majority of seedlings produced in California for reforestation. By combining Silvaseed Nursery's seed bank with Cal Forest's extensive nursery capacity, Mast is able to complete every complex step in the reforestation process in months instead of years. It's all paid for using “carbon financing”: using payments from companies that value the carbon dioxide removal performed by Mast's projects to reduce upfront costs to landowners.
Why This Matters
Climate change is making wildfires bigger, hotter, and more frequent, which is devastating forests and their ability to regrow naturally. Restoring the land with native trees brings more species of wildlife, helps naturally filter water, and removes carbon from the atmosphere.
