Source of funding /amount
FHP: $2,100 and $2,100 from USDA Forest Service Region 4.
Supplemental funding: $2,520 from Grand Teton National Park
Dates of restoration efforts
- To compile a database and GIS layer of the locations, date, and survival rates of planted whitebark pine seedlings in the GYA to update existing database (Izlar 2007).
- Where data is available, to identify site characteristics related to survivorship.
Acres/ha treated N/A
To update work by Izlar (2007), we would use USFS activities tracking database (FACTS) to obtain survival and planting information. In addition, we would communicate with individual units about their planting projects. This database could be converted to a spatial layer to be shared or posted to a website.
Planting? If so, source of seedlings? Resistance? No
D.K. Izlar’s thesis contributed greatly to this data base.
