Find The Forests

Many different types of forests cover Oregon.

Water, sun, snow, rain, soil, slope and wind shape each forest. The most important factors that create the pattern of forest regions are moisture and temperature.

Each forest region presents unique considerations for its use and management. Greater variations are found within each region - every forest landscape has its own character and distinctive features.
