A most unlikely oasis in a desert of clear-cuts, Federation State Forest is one of the last stands of significant old-growth anywhere in the White River Valley. This thin stretch of protected land along WA 410 features a lush, lowland forest of Douglas fir, western hemlock, western red cedar, and the relatively uncommon Sitka spruce. Some of the largest trees reach from 5 to 7 feet in diameter and grow several hundred feet high.
