Windbreak and shade trees in the community of Allen on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota are still healthy seven years later!

The tree planting portion of the Tribal Lands Renewable Energy program began in 2003 with the planting of windbreak and shade trees in the community of Allen on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota.  Since then, TWP has planted hundreds of trees on Pine Ridge in Wanblee, Crossroads, Batesland, Wakpamni Lakes, and Oglala. This program, known as “Energyscape,” also included a number of renewable energy workshops at Oglala Lakota College on Pine Ridge to help educate reservation residents about the benefits of tree planting and renewable energy.
