Sometimes the trees have been harvested in logging operations. Sometimes they are lost to forest fire. The goal of the tree planter is to restore the forest one tree at a time. Using a hoedad, the earth is opened to receive a seedling; the soil pressed gently closed. The planter hopes some day to see a forest growing there.
