Black Forest

Encompassing some 200,000 acres, with most of it preservation-protected, the Black Forest area is heavily wooded and includes predominantly 5 acre and larger home-sites in a rural setting. Although scarred by the infamous 2013 Black Forest Fire, (The most destructive fire in the state's history; claiming over 500 homes and at least two lives), it remains an awe-inspiring expanse of natural beauty. 

Two popular, very similar, stories based on the dark color of the forest explain the name ;

Early German immigrants likened the dark hue of the Ponderosa Pines to the The Black Forest in Germany and/or early pioneers, equally enchanted by the dark color seen from from afar, simply called it The Black Forest then.
