Western white pines, Idaho’s state tree, used to be forest giants of the Inland Northwest, but no longer. By discussing white pine ecology, recounting the tree’s demise in the Northwest, and exploring restoration strategies, foresters from the University of Idaho, USDA Forest Service, and Potlatch Corporation conclude in this amply illustrated, 24-page booklet (2001) that breeding and aggressively planting blister rust–resistant white pine are the best ways to restore white pine ecosystems in the region. A handy resource list provides contact information for a variety of related services and plant materials.
