Umatilla National Forest - Historic Documents

The Umatilla National Forest silviculture library has an archive of historical reference materials. With few exceptions, only items produced before 1950 are included in the history archive.

The archive contains materials for the entire Blue Mountains, not just the Umatilla National Forest. This decision was made because national forest boundaries have evolved through time; much of the south end of the Umatilla National Forest was previously included in the Wallowa-Whitman or Malheur National Forests.

In 1995, the Umatilla National Forest decided to transcribe commonly requested reports so they could be offered in an electronic format. The table below lists the reports, and it provides a link to their abstract. Many of the reports are also available for downloading in a PDF format.
