Description: The Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest, established in 1961, is representative of the vast expanses of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) found east of the Continental Divide in Montana, southwest Alberta, and Wyoming. Discrete generations of even-age lodgepole stands form a mosaic typical of the fireprone forests at moderate to high altitudes in the Northern Rocky Mountains. Spruce (Picea engelmannii) grows in the area's sparse but species-rich wetlands, while whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) and subalpine fir (Abies lasiocarpa) grace the higher ridgetops. Native cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), cutthroatrainbow hybrids, and brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) spawn in the forest's six main drainages.

Keywords: Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest, lodgepole pine, Pinus contorta, ecology, climate, soils
