Western White Pine Management Programs Realigned on Northern Rocky Mountain National Forests
Abstract:A comprehensive evaluation of problems of managing western white pine stands in national forests in the northern Rocky Mountains completed in 1966 led the U.S. Forest Service to realign its management of this and associated species. Comparative reduction in economic importance of western white pine, coupled with inability of blister rust control programs to protect white pine, strongly influenced the federal management decision.
