    Description

    Limber Pine (Pinus flexilis) populations in the southern Rock Mountains are severely threatened by the combined impacts of mountain pine beetles and white pine blister rust. Limber pine’s critical role these high elevation ecosystems heightens the importance of mitigating impacts. To develop forest-scale planting methods six seedling planting trial sites were installed extending from the Medicine Bow Nation Forest in southern Wyoming to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve in southern Colorado
