- Several generations of Oregonians carry
memories of a series of forest fires so
sweeping that they spurred an entire state
into action. These fires created what was for
a long time called the "Tillamook Burn" -- a wide
swath of devastation cut through old growth forests in
the Coast Range. From some vantage points, the forest
of bare, dead trees stretched as far as the eye could see.
Today, the view has been replaced. A vital, growing
young forest of Douglas-fir now stretches to the
horizon across the region. The Tillamook State Forest
represents a monumental cooperative effort among a
diverse population to bring life back to the 355,000 acres
destroyed by fire. People from around the area -- foresters, timber workers, recreationists, politicians and
school children -- worked together to replant the
Tillamook and reclaim it for the people of Oregon.
