Description:

Limber pines are widely distributed across the Rocky Mountains and are especially important because of their unique cultural and ecological characteristics. Recent surveys have suggested that significant ecological impacts are occurring as a result of white pine blister rust (WPBR) and other damaging agents. Additionally, several new WPBR infestations have been discovered in Colorado and the disease front in northern Colorado is within 6 miles of Rocky Mountain National Park. Past studies have provided critical information on the distribution and intensity of the disease, but we have little information on the longterm changes that will result from this invasive disease.

Keywords: limber pines, white pine blister rust (WPBR), invasive species, forest management
