The deep sandstone canyons, mountaintops, meadows, lakes, and streams of the Manti-La Sal National Forest create a diverse landscape.  From the Abajos and La Sals in southeastern Utah to the Wasatch Plateau and Sanpitch mountains hundreds of miles away in central Utah, the Forest is a welcome retreat.

Accelerating Restoration

/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd480868.pdfLarge areas of National Forest System land are at risk from the effects of a changing climate, including catastrophic wildfire, insect and disease, and other stressors. The potential restoration treatment needs on these lands are between 65 million to 82 million acres. 

Restoration of diverse landscapes nationwide is critical to maintaining and enhancing the functions needed from productive, resilient forests and grasslands to support thriving communities and economies. 

Restoration helps to ensure that forests and grasslands continue to provide the goods and services that Americans want and need, including clean air and water, wood products, energy, recreation opportunities, carbon management, and fish and wildlife habitat.

Forest Vicinity Map

Think of the Manti-La Sal as a group of far-flung islands of forest that are scattered from central Utah to southeastern Utah and western Colorado. The Sanpitch Mountains and the Wasatch Plateau are closest to the urban areas of the Wasatch Front.  Far to the southeast are two other islands of Forest, the La Sal mountains, and the Abajo/Elk Ridge mountains.
