DescriptionThe western white pine type is the most valuable timber cover type of the Inland Empire. The large volumes per acre, greater than those found in any associated type, and the high value of the type species, western white pine (Pinus monticola Dougl.), combine to give stumpage returns that greatly exceed those of other regional types, lagging in the mountainous country of Idaho north of the Salmon River, where 90 percent of the white pine sawtimber of the Northern Rocky Mountain Region is found, has often hinged upon the high value of the white pine. Similarly, the presence of white pine timber often has meant the difference between success and failure of lumber-milling enterprises.
