Forest Service range research in Region Six, that is, in the States of Oregon and Washington, became a reality with the passage of the Agricultural Appropriation Bill for the fiscal year 1937. Ironically, the region that pioneered range studies, in 1907, was the last west of the hundredth meridian to add range investigations to its formal research program. So soon after its first anniversary, little can be said of research on Oregon and Washington forest ranges other than to discuss briefly the problems to be met, the objectives sought, and the hopes for future accomplishment.
