Description: National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring (I&M) networks conduct long-term monitoring to provide park managers information on the status and trends in key biological and environmental attributes (Vital Signs). Here we present an overview of a collaborative approach to long-term monitoring of high-elevation white pine forest dynamics among three Pacific West Region I&M networks: Klamath (KLMN), Sierra Nevada (SIEN), and Upper Columbia Basin (UCBN). Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) is monitored in five national parks: Lassen Volcanic and Crater Lake in the KLMN, and Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon in the SIEN. Foxtail pine (P. balfouriana) is monitored in Sequoia and Kings Canyon, and limber pine (P. flexilis) is monitored in Craters of the Moon in the UCBN.

Keywords: high elevation five-needle pines, threats, whitebark, Pinus albicaulis, limber, Pinus flexilis, southwestern white, Pinus strobiformis, foxtail, Pinus balfouriana, Great Basin bristlecone, Pinus longaeva, Rocky Mountain bristlecone pine, Pinus aristata
