Dixie National Forest

Forest Overview

Dixie National Forest is comprised of almost two million scenic acres that extend across more than 150 miles of picturesque landscape in southern Utah. This multi-use forest is a haven for adventurers and vacationers. The cliffs and gorges near the Colorado River create a beautiful backdrop for hiking, biking, and canoeing. The diverse climate also provides habitat for many different wildlife species such as the cougar, bobcat, blue grouse, golden eagle, cottontail rabbit, wild turkey, and antelope.

This project will result in regenerating adequate numbers of ponderosa pine and Douglasfir trees on burned areas and an accelerated return of desired forest cover to these areas.

Dixie National Forest Needs Our Help

50,000 ponderosa pine trees desperately need to be planted in three areas that have experienced wildfire in the last two years that resulted in near 100% mortality of living trees. This project will result in regenerating adequate numbers of ponderosa pine and Douglasfir trees on burned areas and an accelerated return of desired forest cover to these areas. The seedlings for this planting effort are currently being grown at the Lucky Peak Nursery and scheduled for delivery and planting in April, 2012.

You can help repair damage to wildlife habitats. Read about our efforts in each and restore the awe-inspiring beauty of our state and national forests.
