DescriptionThere are some 2 million acres of lodgepole pine in eastern Oregon and Washington. Much of it was formerly classified as noncommercial; the trees were small, many were limby, and there was very little market for the low-value products. But the type has lately gained in commercial importance, and results of such little forest research as has been devoted to lodgepole pine stands in this region suggest that their value and growing capacity have not been fully appreciated. Increased demands for poles and sawlogs and the current prospects of a pulpwood market are now encouraging timber owners to make plans for the orderly management of lodgepole pine forests. They find that information on growth and management and even on existing volumes of lodgepole pine is scarce.
