About Us

The Pacific Northwest Region (region 6) of the U.S. Forest Service contains 17 national Forests, two National Scenic Areas, a national grassland, and two National Volcanic Monuments, all within the states of Oregon and Washington. These national forests provide forest products for communities, forage for cattle and wildlife, habitat for fish, plants and animals, and some of the finest recreation opportunities in the country.

Modernization of Forest Plans in the Northwest

The Pacific Northwest and Pacific Southwest regions of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service collaboratively developed and released a Bioregional Assessment of Northwest Forests, which provides a snapshot in time of the current ecological, social and economic conditions on national forest system lands within the Northwest Forest Plan amendment area as well as two adjacent units across Washington, Oregon and California. The NWFP amended existing forest plans on 19 national forest units across Washington, Oregon and California. The NWFP and those underlying forest plans require key updates to address contemporary management needs. For more information about the process to update forest plans, visit the Modernization of Forest Plans in the Northwest Home Page.


Providing A Safe, Welcoming, And Inclusive Experience for All Visitors

National Forest lands belong to everyone. The Forest Service has zero tolerance for racism, harassment, or intimidation in any form. Public lands should be a place of peace and refuge and our highest priority is providing a safe, welcoming, and inclusive experience for all visitors.
