Welcome to the Oregon Department of Forestry’s North Cascade District and Santiam State Forest web site.   The district encompasses two units, the Santiam Unit - which is also the District Headquarters - and the Molalla Unit.  The geographic area of the district is bordered to the north by the Columbia River, to the south by the Thomas Creek drainage, to the east by the crest of the Cascade Mountains, and to the west by the Willamette River and I-5.
The North Cascade District intensively manages the 47,871 acre Santiam State Forest and provides forest fire protection, detection, and suppression, and insect and disease prevention on 534, 818 acres of state and private forest land.  In addition, the district provides fire prevention and suppression services on 117,677 acres of Bureau of Land Management land. 
Another important service North Cascade provides is assistance to private forest landowners in Clackamas, Marion, northern Linn, and eastern Multnomah counties.
Thank you for your interest in the North Cascade District.  More information on the district can be found in the district's latest annual report, and we hope this web site will also provide you with valuable information.
