Northwest Forest Soils Council

The Northwest Forest Soils Council (NWFSC) was established in 1949 to tackle management concerns with forest soils. NWFSC is a council of the Western Forestry and Conservation Association.

The council is organized to facilitate exchange of forest soils information and ideas among interested professionals in the Northwest, and encourage a more widespread understanding that soil is the basis for production of forest wealth — timber, forage, water, wildlife, and recreation values.
