The Nebraska National Forest. Ok I'm kidding a bit, but it does have the distinction of containing the largest hand-planted forest in the U.S.

Truthful answer - the White River and Arapahoe National Forests in Colorado.

Maine, Vermont, New York, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Tennessee, North Carolina, Arkansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California

I think of big tall trees especially pine trees, a lake and river and streams nearby, campsites, native fauna like bear, deer, eagles, hawks, a mountain is a bonus but not needed.

I'm so glad I'm gonna be living a few hours from pristine northern wilderness for camping and hiking.

Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

An interesting fact is that Idaho is the most heavily forested inland state in the West.

Here is a list of the states ranked by percent of forest cover in the state.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forest..._United_States

I was surprised Wyoming's percentage is only 9.2 percent. I would have thought that one of the most forested states.

Not too surprising when you consider much of the state looks like Nebraska and South Dakota. Most of its woods are in the western part where Yellowstone is.
