* Tree planting: Trees are planted in upland and riparian reforestation on Tribal and national lands, and restoration of burn-sites, and removal of fuel loads and invasives; conservation plantings in State Parks, along roadways, and other public landscapes, and establishing windbreaks; in urban settings like parks, schools and medians, and in neighborhoods on right of ways and private property.
* Tree care and maintenance: Our Citizen Tree Planting Training Manual is used as the basis for the trainings as it addresses all major topics of proper planting and after-care for successful planting experience and long term care.
* Riparian restoration: TNM established River Rescue in 2001 to help bring recognition to our river forests. The program addresses riparian health holistically, starting with forest and watershed health, taking us to the riparian ecosystem.
