I would guess a lot of it is just where the calculations have been done. The two RNAs in Oregon and Washington don't strike me as places that are exceptionally unique being mid-elevation forest in the Cascade Mounbtains. Any number of forests in the Coastal Ranges of Oregon, British Columbia, or the Olympics of Washington would be higher, I'd think, because of wetter conditions, less sever winters, and deeper soils.
