GYCC Committee Gets Arbor Day Award

Arbor Day

The Greater Yellowstone Whitebark Pine Committee is the recipient of a 2012 Arbor Day Award in honor of its contribution to tree planting, conservation and stewardship.  The Arbor Day Foundation announced Tuesday that the Montana, Wyoming and Idaho-based Greater Yellowstone Whitebark Pine Committee is one of 16 individuals and organizations being recognized by the Foundation at the annual Arbor Day Awards Nebraska Saturday. The Committee is being recognized with a Forest Lands Leadership Award for its leadership in advancing sustainable forestry efforts on public forestland.  Whitebark pine trees are critical to the ecosystem of the Greater Yellowstone Area, but the species currently faces several threats, including white pine blister rust, increasing mountain pine beetle outbreaks and competition from other forest species. The Greater Yellowstone Whitebark Pine Committee was formed in 2000 as a subcommittee of the federal Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee to address these threats.
