    Description

    The 10 counties in northwest Oregon have a combined land area of 5.6 million acres, or about 8,760 square miles. These include Clatsop, Columbia, Tillamook, Washington, Multnomah, Hood River, Yamhill, Clackamas, Polk, and Marion Counties. Of this total, 4.0 million acres are commercial forest land and 1.6 million acres are nonforest land. In 1959, 1.7 million acres in northwest Oregon were in farms (U. S. Bureau of the Census 1961) This total included 960,000 acres of cropland, of which 691,000 acres were harvested; the remainder was either in pasture or fallow. Woodland on farms totaled 507,000 acres, more than half of which was pastured.
