The blister rust disease threatens to wipe out the 5-needle pines as commercial species. Are they worth the cost of defending them against the disease? The author makes a clear case for western (Idaho) white pine. He finds that its wood has such intrinsic value that in spite of business depressions it commands a good price and has a better market than its associates. Without the white pine many areas of the Inland Empire would not be worth logging and if white pine is not protected to assure its appearance in future stands its place will be taken, not by its nearest market competitor, ponderosa pine, but by the species of much less utility and value such as white fir and hemlock.
