Sequoia Salvage Restoration Project

After the main tree removal, the logging crew salvaged these sequoias as part of the restoration project, and we are now using these fallen giants to generate revenues to support and restore the Calvin Crest timberlands, watershed restoration, and habitat enhancement for future generations.

Sequoia Fire Damaged Trunk

Calvin Crest Conferences, located less than 10 miles south of Yosemite National Park, suffered a catastrophic wildfire in 2017 that burned 12,000 acres of forest, which included about 2/3 of the camp lands and an approximate 230 acres.

Railroad Fire

the Railroad fire was a very severe and intense crown fire and completely destroyed this grove of Sequoia, including many old growth in the neighboring Nelder Grove. After the 2017 fire, over 70 second growth Sequoia were salvaged, with some trees nearly 200 feet tall and up to 6 feet in diameter.
