Abstract

There are three national forests in Region Two whose main products are railroad cross-ties, manufactured from lodgepole pine. These forests are the Medicine Bow and Washakie, both in Wyoming, and the Roosevelt in Colorado. The altitude at which lodgepole occurs in these areas ranges from 8,500 feet to a little over 10,000 feet. Ordinarily the topography is not very rugged, being generally rather gentle in character. In fact the Medicine Bow is, because of its existing roads and easy topography, the most accessible national forest in Wyoming.
