Growing endangered Whitebark Pine in the Bridge-Seton Watershed
The objective of this project was to survey previous planting sites and to restore Whitebark Pine sites through planting. Surveyed densities identified survival rates of 55% and 74%. Although these survival rates are acceptable, improvements can be made by producing more robust seedlings and increasing planting densities at sites with easy access. All seedlings planted were from putatively resistant parents. A total of 3,248 seedlings were planted over 6.87 ha. This project aligns with the Bridge Seton Watershed Plan BRG.UAD.SB.38.01 (pg 41).
