CHADRON, Neb. (AP) — Roughly 42,000 ponderosa pine tree seedlings will be planted in fire-damaged areas of northwest Nebraska this spring.

John Lee of the U.S. Forest Service said the seedlings will begin the long process of reforesting areas damaged by fire in 2012 and 2006. Recovery may take more than 20 years.
