Abstract

Western white pine grows along west coast mountain ranges from Vancouver Island and the Homathko River on the adjacent mainland in British Columbia southward to the San Bernardino Mountains of southern California (13, 65, 75, 83). In the interior its range is from Quesnel Lake through the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia southward into northern Idaho, western Montana, and northeastern Washington and also into the Blue Mountains of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon (13, 52, 65, 75, 83). The species attains its greatest size and reaches its best stand and commercial development in northern Idaho and adjacent sections of Montana, Washington, and British Columbia (1, 48).
