PropagationNation (PN) is a Washington not-for-profit whose mission is to foster the propagation and growth of coast redwoods and giant sequoias for reforestation in the Pacific Northwest. 

In the 2023-24 planting season just completed, PN provided 14,000 redwoods and sequoias to over 200 groups in the Northwest, including tribes, salmon enhancement groups, conservation districts, and numerous forestland owners.  For the 2024-25 planting season, PN has contracted with two nurseries, one in Washington and one in Oregon, to grow 25,000 redwoods and 15,000 sequoias which will be available for distribution this Fall.
