Where is the largest ponderosa pine forest in the world?

The largest contiguous tract of ponderosa pine forest in the world is in Arizona; stretching from the New Mexico border northwest to the Grand Canyon.

The largest stand of Ponderosa Pine trees in the world is at the Coconino National Forest. It is just one of the six National Forests in Arizona and covers 1.8 million acres of varied landscape and elevation. The elevation is as low as 2,600 feet and rises to the top of the San Francisco Peaks at 12, 633 feet.

Look into this towering tree that only grows at elevations between 6,000 and 8,000 feet in Flagstaff, a town that is located in the largest contiguous Ponderosa pine forest in the world. It is where you can enjoy spacious vistas and cool, clean mountain air.
