Pacific Northwest Region Overview
Celebrating Independence Day
Forest Service officials in the Pacific Northwest are asking everyone to celebrate safely and make fire safety a part of your weekend’s festivities.
Welcome to the Pacific Northwest!
The Pacific Northwest Region 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 found anywhere.
