Restoration planting options for Pinus flexilis James in the southern Rocky Mountains
MetadataShow full item record
Pinus flexilis James populations in the southern Rocky Mountains are severely threatened by the combined impacts of mountain pine beetles and white pine blister rust. P. flexilis' critical role in high elevation ecosystems heightens the importance of mitigating threats to P. flexilis survival. To develop forest-scale planting methods, six P. flexilis seedling planting trial sites were installed, extending from the Medicine Bow National Forest in southern Wyoming to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve in southern Colorado. Six plots were established at each site, with three plots under ...
