Status of Whitebark Pine – Monitoring

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

MANAGEMENT IMPLICATIONS

Monitoring

Permanent inventory plots should be established with the primary purpose of detecting the rate of blister rust infection and mortality. Transects should be located throughout the Park and represent the different communities that whitebark pine supports. Moreover, a climate station in the eastern portion of the Park would be useful for comparing fine-scale weather effects with the west side while also providing an enhanced account of overall, broad-scale trends in Cascadian climate.
