$25 for the forest? That's right. In an effort to promote regrowth from the 2020 Oregon fire season, we're not only giving $25 to you and a friend, but to the forest itself¹.

Let's get some basic information from you.

We'll be keeping score, and now you can too.

We'll be keeping track of your tree scores here. For every successful member referral you get, you'll get a tree, which actually represents roughly 25 trees planted thanks to your recommendation of Heritage Grove to someone else.

And if you decide to make a bet with your friends that you can refer more people to us, well, that's just good, healthy competition. Plant on!

Where there's fire, there's regrowth

To those who live in the Western United States, wildfires are nothing new. Our unique terrain is shaped by dramatic mountains and valleys hosting a diverse array of forests and wildlife. The combination of old and new forests formed by fire over millennia is valuable to many species that depend on the complex conditions.

Wildfires are a natural part of a forest’s environment and they create healthy conditions for many plants and animals. However, when forest fires become large and burn hot, much of what we love and use is lost in their paths. Miles of forests that have taken generations to grow can be lost overnight.

The 2020 Oregon wildfire season was one of the most destructive on record.

Across the state, fires burned more than 1.2 million² acres of land and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses. More than 2,000 individual fires or fire complexes left a mark on Oregon like no other². Within the affected areas was the 47,000+ acre Santiam State Forest, which saw extensive damage from the Beachie Creek Fire. The Santiam State Forest just happens to be our backdoor neighbor.

It's the little things that citizens do. That's what will make the difference. My little thing is planting trees.

ReGrove Initiative | Heritage Grove FCU | Santiam State Forest

Historic drought and hurricane-force winds contributed to the catastrophic loss of forests within more than half of The Santiam State Forest, resulting in untold loss not only for trees and wildlife habitat, but surrounding communities, families, and beloved recreation areas. Knowing the importance of this beautiful forest to local ecosystems and wanting to restore it for ourselves and so many of our members, Heritage Grove Federal Credit Union established the ReGrove Initiative. Along with our good friends at the Tillamook Forest Heritage Trust, a local forestry foundation, the Initiative aims to help replant, rebuild, and re-grove the Santiam State Forest so that it can continue to flourish and provide the benefits it has for many years.

Stepping into Santiam State Forest

Thousands of visitors each year have enjoyed the rich, beautiful and diverse life inside The Santiam State Forest. It is home to many thousands of permanent residents—more than 250 species of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish. The land hosts five campgrounds, over twenty miles of hiking trails, fire lookouts, waterfalls, wetlands and old-growth forests. The Santiam State Forest is a truly unique landscape close to home, worthy of restoring.

With every new member that joins Heritage Grove Federal Credit Union, we’ll donate $25 toward restoration of The Santiam State Forest¹. This money will go directly towards repairing and replanting throughout the 47,871 acres with the help of the Oregon Department of Forestry that manages The Santiam State Forest. We aim to help re-establish a vibrant, healthy forest through a wide range of proven reforestation methods with the help of members like you.
