  • Clear-cut forest

    The Oregon and Washington coasts are pockmarked with miles of clear-cut forest. Clear-cutting leaves the land looking like it has been hit by a hurricane.

  • Visible clear-cut

    While the clear-cutting is often hidden away or hard to see, it is sometimes directly visible from Highway 101.

  • Tall tree

    Because of heavy annual rainfall, high humidity, deep and well-draining soil and mild temperatures, the trees in the Hoh Rain Forest are among the tallest of their species in the world.
