    Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) is a major species in northeastern Oregon. The lodgepole type covers nearly 400,000 acres in the Blue and Wallowa Mountains, and individual trees are scattered over many of the remaining six million forested acres in this area (2). The type blankets large areas in watersheds in a region where spring floods and summer irrigation are vital factors in the economy. It also serves as a cover for game--grouse, snowshoe hares, deer, and elk. And, it is potentially important for lumber, poles, and pulpwood.
