Map Showing the Forest Cover in Montana

This map illustrates how comparatively little forest cover Montana has. Actually, compared to other western states, Montana has quite a bit of forest cover. However, due to the huge size of the Montana prairie, much of the state is essentially treeless. In most areas of eastern and central Montana, most of the forested areas will either be found right along the rivers or on high, isolated large hills and small mountain peaks. The most forested area of Montana is in the higher mountains and in NW Montana (where the most precipitation falls).
