Santa Fe National Forest

Replanting Our Nation’s Forests

Forest Overview

The 1.6 million acre Santa Fe National Forest is located in northern New Mexico. The forest provides a wide range of beautiful landscape with elevations ranging from 5,000 feet to 13,000 feet. The Santa Fe National Forest is home to four wilderness areas which provide opportunities for fishing, hiking, hunting, biking and so much more.

Santa Fe National Forest Needs Our Help

This is the third year of reforestation in the Santa Fe National Forest in the aftermath of the Las Conchas Fire of 2011, which burned 156,000 acres. This devastating event is New Mexico's second largest wildfire on record. Throughout the watershed, the loss of forest cover has caused serious soil loss and flooding damage. In the upper watershed, a once narrow shaded forest stream is now a rocky gully. The trees planted will reforest approximately 300 acres adjacent to the Dome Wilderness. With your help, we can contribute to the restoration of this severely degraded watershed.

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.
