Eastern Cascades forests

WWF Abstract

Magnificent old-growth forests of ponderosa pine, western larch, and Douglas-fir once covered the slopes of the Eastern Cascades but are now found only in remnant patches. The current mixture of shrublands, grasslands, and coniferous forests in the Eastern Cascades Forests ecoregion provides habitat for animals ranging from eagles to otters.
