  • Pacific Northwest Region

    The Pacific Northwest, perhaps more than any other region in the United States, is defined by its 24.7 million acres of public lands in Oregon and Washington. These lands provide the people and communities of the Pacific Northwest their livelihood, recreation, visual backdrop, and identity.

    Our important work on national forest lands is framed by key priorities:

    • Reducing overly dense and unhealthy forest conditions, made worse by climate change, to protect communities, critical infrastructure, and our forests and watersheds from the growing threat of wildfires.
    • Supporting the immediate needs of landscapes and communities in the wake of wildfires & other disasters.
    • Providing community service to all, and supporting economic prosperity, health, and resiliency within communities we serve.
