    Description

    Controlled inoculations of whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) families in British Columbia (BC), Canada, took place in 2013 and 2014 at the Kalamalka Forestry Centre in Vernon. This effort has focused on 40 families from the Kootenay region with results (identification of disease-resistant families) expected over the next 5 years. Meanwhile, demand continues for further screening of whitebark pine from other regions in Canada. New funding from the BC Forest Genetics Council will permit work to continue. Our plan is to inoculate 40 additional families per year (2016-2018). Seedlings will be collected by multiple partners such as national and provincial parks and possibly mining companies.
