Dates of restoration efforts
Collect stand data and identify whitebark pine restoration opportunities within an area that may have genetic resistance to white pine blister rust.
200 acres of data collection
Walk through exams would determine the extent of the whitebark pine community in this area. Treatment areas would be delineated based on these exams. Stand data would be collected within the delineated treatment areas in preparation for analysis.
Planting? If so, source of seedlings? Resistance? No
Currently, 105 acres have been established with initial long term sampling. The remaining acres (95) will be planted and sampled by Spring 2014.
Monitoring since completion of the project
Project will be completed Spring 2014.
Plans for future monitoring? Continue to implement remaining 95 sample acres with initial plots in 2014.
Will outcome meet goals?
This will be determined after data collection is completed.
