Temperate Rainforest: Southern Oregon Forest
The Klamath region is a meeting ground...Yellow-cedar, Pacific silver fir, subalpine fir, Englemann spruce, and noble fir grow no further south than the Klamath region; and foxtail pine, gray pine, and knobcone pine reach no further north. That makes eight species. To them add the nineteen tree species common throughout these mountains plus two found only here, Brewer spruce and Port-Orford-cedar. This swells the total for the region to twenty-nine kinds of conifers, a rich variety. 1996. Sawyer, J. O., Jr. Northern California. In R. Kirk (Ed.), The Enduring Forests. Seattle: The Mountaineers, p. 35.

The Coast Range of Oregon
Topographical diverse, these mountains (the Oregon Coast range) climb from sea level to just over 4,000 feet. Close to the Pacific shore, where rainfall averages 70 to 100 inches annually, loamy soil supports Sitka-spruce rainforest." 1996. Durbin, K. Oregon. In R. Kirk (Ed.), The Enduring Forests. Seattle: The Mountaineers, p. 52.
