DescriptionCommunities in Western Washington and Oregon include nearly 7.4 million people (State of Washington 2001, US Census Bureau 2001) comprising almost 80% of the states’ total populations. The region’s rapid growth, development, and increasing congestion belie the area’s verdant repute. Forests continue to be a quintessential component of the Pacific Northwest’s economic, physical, and social fabric. However, with reliance on traditional forest products waning, urban and community forests bring opportunity for economic renewal, combating development woes, and increasing the quality of life for community residents.
