    Description

    Direct seeding is an emerging technique that could significantly reduce the labor and costs associated with whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) restoration, and may be compatible with wilderness values. Because other restoration methods-including outplanting of seedlings-are largely incompatible with maintaining wilderness as "untrammeled and natural," the adoption of direct seeding may open an additional 48 percent of whitebark pine habitat to restoration efforts in the future.
