Rancho Santa Fe (Spanish: santa—holy, fe—faith) (known locally as "Rancho" is a
census-designated place (CDP) in San Diego County, California and an
unincorporated bedroom community of San Diego County. The population was 3,252
at the 2000 census. At $245,631, it is one of the highest income communities in
the United States with at least 1,000 households. The CDP is primarily
residential with one shopping avenue as well as several private schools, and
single family residential areas situated on uncommonly large lots.
Rancho Santa Fe has many strict architectural design codes as can be exemplified
by several attempts from local residents to improve upon or build new
residences. Forbes reported Rancho Santa Fe as having the third most expensive
ZIP code in the United States, and most expensive in California, with a median
home sale price of $2,585,000. Some homes in ZIP code 92067 but not within the
CDP are valued at more than the median home-value within the Master Planned
Community that makes up the official CDP, and many people who live within the
92067 ZIP code cite their community as Rancho Santa Fe even though they do not
live within the strict boundaries of the Master Planned Community. The United
States Postal Service refers to all homes in the 92067 and 92091 ZIP codes, as
well as many of the communities in the 92127 ZIP code, as "Rancho Santa Fe".
The downtown is centered around the intersection of Linea del Cielo/Paseo
Delicias and La Granada/Via de Santa Fe. It is the site of offices of financial
firms, restaurants, and small stores. A library and a school are also located
here. The community directory, the Rancho Santa Fe Blue Book, is published
annually to provide residents with a comprehensive account of businesses in and
around Rancho Santa Fe.
Rancho Santa Fe was one of the hardest hit communities during the 2007 Witch
Creek fire. Several houses burned, while several others sustained significant
damage as firefighters had difficulty accessing the more rugged areas with
flames rapidly advancing due to strong Santa Ana winds.
In 1906, the Santa Fe Railway initiated a project of growing eucalyptus trees
for railroad timber at the Rancho San Dieguito which constitutes present-day
Rancho Santa Fe. At that time about 93% of the property was under one ownership,
but the balance of the acreage was vested in a number of separate owners.
In August 1906, the Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company acquired the
several tracts, taking title in its affiiliate, the so-called “Santa Fe Land
Additional small parcels were added including the original properties owned by
the Mexican settlers of the area, the Osuna family who had been recipients of a
Mexican Land Grant under Mexican rule of California called "Rancho San Dieguito".
A survey in 1922 showed that the new land Company owned 8,796.23 acres (35.5971
Officials of the Santa Fe Railway needed satisfactory material for railroad
ties, and since the Rancho San Dieguito could be supplied with sufficient water
from wells and the nearby river, Eucalyptus seedlings were imported from
Australia and planting began in January 1907.
While the Company planted about 3,000 acres (12 km2), the experiment proved a
A drought in 1912, followed by a severe frost in 1914, killed about 60% of the
remaining trees and all seedlings. Experiments with redwood and other materials
at other locations brought abandonment of the project in 1915, and planting was
discontinued on Rancho San Dieguito.
While the experiment proved the trees too hard for railway ties, the eucalyptus
and additional planting of other non-native trees and shrubbery were seen as an
enhancement to the environment of Rancho Santa Fe until the disastrous
California wildfires of September and October 2008.
The problem began in 1989 with the infestation of an insect native to Australian
eucalyptus forests leading to the immediate and irreversible decile of the Red
Gum Eucalyptus forest of Rancho Santa Fe.
The red gum lerp psyllid (Glycaspis brimblecombei) was first found in Los
Angeles in 1998 and then spread throughout much of California rapidly. This
Australian insect now also occurs in Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, and Mexico on a
variety of eucalyptus species.
