    Ownership of forest land in the Douglas-fir and ponderosa pine sub regions of Oregon and Washington shows little change over the past two decades, according to Forest Survey inventories made in the 1930's, 1945, and 1953. Prior to 1945, some shifting of the ownership pattern occurred, with the area of private forest land decreasing and public ownership increasing. However, since 1945 the change between public and private ownership has been negligible (figure 1).
