Description: Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) is one of many North American white pine species (Pinus subgenus Strobus) susceptible to the fungal disease white pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola). Blister rust has caused severe mortality (often reaching nearly 100 percent) in many stands of white bark pine north of 45° latitude in western North America. The rust is slowly moving south through the range of whitebark pine and other white pine species.

Keywords: whitebark pine, Pinus albicaulis, Pinus subgenus Strobus, white pine blister rust, Cronartium ribicola
