is a western hemlock forest, with large western
hemlock and Douglas-fir trees, as well as hardwoods
like bigleaf maple; it is in the foothills of the
Coast Range, west of Corvallis, Oregon. Adjacent
to a "Valley Zone" found in the Willamette
Valley, this forest is very dynamic: the zone gains
in area as trees colonize native oak woodland and
unused agricultural lands, and the forest zone loses
area through conversion to urban and suburban development.
