Rancho Santa Fe Real Estate History

In 1906 the Santa Fe Railway purchased the area that is now Rancho Santa Fe in order to grow Eucalyptus trees .  The Santa Fe Railway needed wood for railroad ties and since Eucalyptus trees grow relatively fast the Santa Fe Railway thought that these trees would be the perfect material choice.   The planting began in 1907 from seedlings imported from Australia.  Over 3,000 acres were planted with the trees but the project turned out to be a failure and the entire project was abandoned in 1915 when many of the trees perished due to drought and frost and it was determined that the wood from Eucalyptus trees make poor railroad ties.  Today Rancho Santa Fe is one of the premier residential locations in all of the United States.
