A study in Linn County, Oregon (Olson et al. 2006) detected 14 nests. Thirteen of these were associated with downed wood, and 10 of those were associated with logs. Based on this study, the mean number of eggs per nest was eight. Ensatina is though to be the most resilient of the Pacific Northwest terrestrial-breeding salamanders relative to forest management. They range broadly across the region, occur in multiople forest types and stand ages, and can be found in relatively dry conditions (Olson et al. 2006).
