Description: The forest industry of the western white pine region depends on the production of white pine as a major species on about 2,670,000 acres of commercial forest land. Continued production of this species and maintenance of the forest industry at anything approaching its present level is impossible unless the white pine blister rust is controlled. Existing merchantable timber can and probably will be harvested before serious losses occur but the young growth, which is the commercial future of this industry, is the great value at stake. The stakes are large - a major industry of the Inland Empire with sustained annual production estimated at 300 million board feet of lumber worth about $10,000,000, and several times as much in direct and indirect employment created by this valuable raw product.
