Eastern white pine is an widely distributed (10.6% of area), dense, and high importance northern pine with little modeled change in suitable habitat by 2100. It does, however, suffer from some negative traits (e.g., susceptibility to drought, fire, and insects) which drops it to low adaptability. Because of its high current abundance, we upgrade its capacity to cope to fair. SHIFT shows good infill.
