Supplemental funding: $2,520 from Grand Teton National Park

Dates of restoration efforts

April-December 2011


  • 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.
