FSC NRA Region-specific resources

WEST: Pacific Coast & Rocky Mountains

This very large region includes 9 western states from Montana to Colorado, California, and Washington. Five Specified Risk topics are included. One (Old Growth) is spread widely throughout the region and not practical for avoidance. The others include Conversion centered in the urban centers of Washington and Oregon, two medium-scale CBA’s in California and southern Oregon, and one endangered salamander range in southern California.

NOTE: If your company’s procurement does NOT  include coastal states (CA, OR, WA), it may be practical to exclude this area and address only a single Specified Risk topic (Old Growth).
