Pacific Northwest Research Station
The Pacific Northwest (PNW) Research Station is one of seven research centers that are part of the USDA Forest Service. We develop and deliver knowledge and innovative technology to improve the health and use of the Nation’s forests and rangelands—both public and private. Since 1925, the PNW Research Station has been dedicated to understanding forests and rangelands. We believe that resilient forests are a promise to generations to come—a promise to replenish the air we breathe and the water we drink and use to grow food. Forest trees store carbon from the roots to the tops. Trees supply wood for homes, biomass for fuel, and fiber for paper. From remote mountains to bustling cities, forests provide habitat for fish and wildlife. Wherever they grow, forests are places of beauty, renewal, and solace.
