Every forest region has problems more or less common with those of every other forest region. Every forest region also has its own peculiar problems. The reproduction of ponderosa pine at low elevations in the northern part of the Sierra Nevada is one of these local problems. Below 2,000 feet elevation there exists a belt in which ponderosa pine grows excellently but its reproduction is difficult and uncertain because of drought and competition with grass, brush, and trees.
