Status of Whitebark Pine – Management Implications

Status of Whitebark Pine in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, 2000



In order to periodically assess the status of whitebark pine in the Park, populations must be found and mapped. We recommend an on-the-ground survey to verify and map its distribution. Aerial photographs, expert knowledge, and a computerized geographical information system (GIS) can be used to identify potential sites supporting whitebark pine. These locations should be field-surveyed, documented, and mapped for boundaries. The combined data and maps can then be added to the Park’s GIS database
