    Except in unusually moist years the survival of planted stock in the northern Rocky Mountains, even on favorable slopes, has not been satisfactory. On good and poor sites alike, the principal cause of the unusual degree of mortality has been the combination of dry soil and dry winds during the hot days of July and August. The results have made it clear that the most important consideration in forest planting in this region is not the choice of a favorable site for planting, but the kinds of planting stock that are best suited to survive the unusually dry conditions, regardless of site.
