Montana's Bull River country offers giant trees, stunning views

December 13, 2017View for printing

Located in the state's northwest corner, the Bull River harbors some of Montana's most productive forests. Timber reaches up to the highest points. This is also Montana's wet country: 50 to 100 inches of annual rainfall nourishes an old-growth rain forest, producing lush vegetation and an enormous variety of native plants. Yet it is also a land of contrast: Big fir trees and western red cedars, products of high precipitation areas, grow just a short way from Douglas firs and the western larch of dryer climatic zones. It is best described as an area where the more arid landscape of the Northern Rocky Mountains begins a transition to the moist environs of the Pacific Northwest.
