Preserve the Forest and Wild Places

The forest on the northeast side of Mt. Hood is a transitional area between distinct forest zones, offering a wide mix of plant species.  Within a relatively small area are examples of a variety of large tree species: Douglas fir, white fir, grand fir, noble fir, larch, hemlock, white pine, black pine, ponderosa pine, cedar, aspen, cottonwood, chinquapin, and Englemann spruce. This mix of forest stands in contrast to a monoculture woods maintained primarily for commercial purposes.
