Artificial Regeneration of Five-Needle Pines of Western North America: A Survey of Current Practices and Future Needs

Waring, K. M. and Goodrich, B. A. Tree Planters' Notes 55(2):55-71. 2012.

After the introduction of the pathogen causing white pine blister rust, the perpetuation of five-needle white pines (5NP) in western North America is partially dependent on successful deployment of genetically resistant seed and seedlings. We surveyed managers, researchers, horticulturists, growers, and academics throughout western North America to (1) review why managers plant 5NP; (2) describe and attempt to quantify efforts to grow and plant 5NP in the West, focusing on actual deployment of seed and seedlings; (3) describe perspectives on artificial regeneration research needs; and (4) outline how managers can continue in their critical roles. We found a dedicated array of people invested in successful seed collection, disease resistance screening and deployment, orchard development, and outplanting survival.
