OR and ID are desert in the corners adjacent to Nevada.

I don't necessarily get how they chunk these forests up into divisions, but you have to look at the total land area and how it's laid out rather than the quantity of national forests. Missouri has the same situation where all the public land gets dumped into Mark Twain National Forest even though it's chunks of forest land covering the entire state.

Nevada has more public land than they know what to do with. From a per capita perspective, the Humboldt NF offers Nevadans a crazy amount of land. Nevada's not as diverse as other places, but within that forest there's everything from desert to subarctic landscapes.

Nevada has the most BLM land and about 75% of the state is government/public land. I just isn't forest lands. I didn't see many trees the few times I drove through. Compared to Arizona and New Mexico, Nevada doesn't have much of a monsoon season. Las Vegas gets less than half the annual rainfall that Albuquerque gets.
