DescriptionThe growth and performance of Pinus monticola, P. strobus, and their hybrids were investigated at several sites in northern Idaho and western Montana. At three sites in northern Idaho, two hybrid progenies were approximately twice as tall and markedly excelled corresponding P. monticola progenies (having the same female parents) in height growth at age 8 years . At one site in western Montana none of the few P. monticola, P. strobus, and hybrid progenies performed satisfactorily. All except a high-elevation P. monticola source from California were severely damaged by snow.
