Hermit’s Peak / Calf Canyon Hazard Trees (Roads) Project

March 6, 2023: The Pecos / Las Vegas Ranger District of the Santa Fe National Forest is proposing to remove dead and dying trees along Forest Service roads and around developed recreation sites on national forest system lands within the Hermit’s Peak / Calf Canyon wildfire post-

burn area.

During the spring/summer of 2022 the Hermit’s Peak / Calf Canyon Fire burned over 340,000 acres in the southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains in San Miguel, Mora, and Taos counties, New Mexico.

The wildfire destroyed and injured trees along many roads within the burned area.

These trees pose a safety hazard because they are more likely to fall onto the driving surface of the roadways or within developed recreational areas. Some trees may be identified for availability for fuelwood or may be removed and offered at another location.
