    Description

    White pine was once a very important part of the ecosysystem in the northern lake states. Turn of the century logging and wildfires removed white pine from many of the ecosystems of which it was an integral part. Early reforestation efforts were largely unsuccessful. The native white pine weevil and the exotic white pine blister rust made white pine establishment difficult at best. Both of these pests pose management challenges. However silvicultural practices can give white pine a distinct advantage over the pests. These practices include regenerating white pine under the shelter of overhead canopy, using genetically selected seed source, dense stocking, pathological and corrective pruning. Careful management is helping white pine once again return as a major component of the ecosystem.
