Pine Restoration Project

usfs

The Buffalo Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest is seeking public input on a proposal to help restore whitebark pine in the South Fork Spread Creek drainage. Whitebark pine populations throughout the western United States have seen a dramatic decline in recent years due to mountain pine beetle.   The project, in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Research Station in Missoula, Montana, would remove trees that are competing with whitebark pines, and create openings where new whitebark pine seedlings can become established. Thinning would be used to cut out small lodgepole pines in 35 year old clearcuts in order to release existing naturally-seeded whitebark pine, promote tree species diversity, and increase stand resistance to future mountain pine beetle outbreaks.  Comments on the proposed project will be accepted until February 17th and may be directed to Karl Buermeyer at the Blackrock Ranger Station in Moran, Wyoming.
