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.
