Because of its location and topography, Santa Barbara County boasts one of the greatest variety of tree species found anywhere.
It’s all about location. With a jump in elevation from sea level to more than 6,000 feet, one can see Monterey cypress and ponderosa pines within a few miles. And with the Santa Ynez Mountains informally considered the dividing line between Northern and Southern California, trees from both regions are found here.
