Giving a Forest New Life
In 2011 over 32,000 acres of Loblolly Pines were destroyed in the Bastrop Complex Wildfire. Schlitterbahn reached out to reclaim the wood by salvaging a section of burned forest. We salvaged thousands of felled logs that were destined for the chipper.
You’ll find part of this Loblolly Pine Forest has been given new life throughout every park as furniture, paneling, cabinets and more. We even had a celebration with the community of Bastrop to share the second life of the Bastrop forest.
