Northwestern California has amassed its diverse flora over a long period of time, and from many sources. This chapter focuses on the classification and ecological dynamics of Northwestern forests. Northwestern California's forests are comprised of 100 tree species, 39 conifers, 22 oaks, and 26 currents and gooseberries among a vascular flora of 3,540 taxa. The chapter discusses conifer forests and reasons why they have limited ranges; forests in low-elevation, montane, and subalpine belts; and terrain and forests of the Klamath Mountains and the North Coast. It also looks at conservation and restoration efforts, and areas for future research.

Keywords:   Northwestern California, tree species, conifers, oaks, currents, gooseberries, montane, subalpine, Klamath Mountains, North Coast
