    Pinus flexilis James. Limber Pine. Pinaceae -- Pine family. Robert Steele. Limber pine (Pinus flexilis), also known as white pine or Rocky Mountain white pine, is a long-lived, slow-growing tree of small to medium size. Its wood, light in weight, close-grained, and pale yellow, is used for rough construction, mine timbers, railroad ties, and poles. A spruce is a tree of the genus Picea / p aɪ ˈ s iː ə /, a genus of about 35 species of coniferous evergreen trees in the family Pinaceae, found in the northern temperate and boreal regions of the s are large trees, from about 20–60 m (about 60– ft) tall when mature, and can be distinguished by their whorled branches and conical form. The needles, or leaves, of spruces. Rocky Mountain Douglas-fir is a minor seral species in the subalpine fir/beargrass habitat type; Rocky Mountain lodgepole pine and subalpine fir are climax; Engelmann spruce and whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) are minor seral species as well. In the subalpine fir/fool's huckleberry habitat type subalpine fir and, to a lesser extent.

METHODSCited by: 4. the Engelmann Spruce – Subalpine Fir Zone, where snowpacks as deep as two to three metres are common. Snows are heaviest in the wetter parts of the zone: for example, in the area of the northern Selkirks and along the Coast Mountains. In the drier areas, where snowfalls are relatively light, soils usually freeze early and remain frozen for several months.

Rocky Mountain Region. One year after the fires, subalpine fir had lost about 40% of volume to fire-related defects and Engelmann spruce about 20%; loss in other species was negligible. The early loss was due primarily to checking, as suggested by the steep declines in log density due to rapid drying of wood and the absence of sap rot after one.

Exists in pure stands or mixed with Engelmann spruce, mountain hemlock, subalpine larch, lodgepole pine, white birch, and trembling aspen Range Central British Columbia, western Alberta, northward into. Subalpine fir is susceptible to several other wood rotting fungi that cause heart, trunk, butt, or root rots, including brown stringy rot, red heart rot, red ring rot, shoestring rot, brown cubical rot, white spongy root rot, and white pocket rot.

Engelmann spruce and subalpine fir mesic forests comprise a substantial part of the subalpine forests of the northwestern Montana Rocky Mountains. In Montana, these mesic to wet forests are very common west of the Continental Divide in the Flathead and Kootenai river drainages.

Western spruce budworm, western balsam bark beetle, and balsam woolly adelgid. Root rots (e.g. laminated root rot), decay in living trees (heart and butt rots, e.g. Indian paint fungus). In British Columbia, subalpine fir grows in pure stands or in a variety of mixed-species stands.

Sites on which blue spruce grows are more moist than those of Rocky Mountain ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa var. scopulorum) and warmer than those of Engelmann spruce (Picea engelmannii) and subalpine fir (Abies lasiocarpa) (2,65).

In Utah, blue spruce is. Sitka spruce is the largest spruce in the world (reaching a height of m in, for instance, the Carmanah River Valley).

At maturity it has a massive stem, often buttressed at base; relatively wide, compact crown, with horizontal branches, and a thin reddish-brown bark broken into large loose scales. The study area, an ∼ km 2 landscape in White River National Forest, was affected by severe widespread fires around and by a spruce beetle outbreak in the s, which affected most of the forests that were dominated by Picea engelmannii (Engelmann spruce) and Abies lasiocarpa (subalpine fir).

Within the Central Rocky Mountains, spruce beetle populations have the potential to rapidly transition from endemic to epidemic levels in the spruce-fir (Engelmann spruce and subalpine fir) forest type.

Conventional management has focused on creating resistance to spruce beetle outbreaks by manipulating the overstory density and by: 9. The need for sound management practices of high-elevation forests is becoming more and more important in British Columbia; however, there is a lack of information on the dynamics and regeneration pattern of these forests.

This pilot study investigates stand dynamics by describing the structure of oldgrowth stands, and correlating the occurrence of regeneration with site factors. Three study. Pinus aristata, the Rocky Mountain Bristlecone Pine, can be found in Utah and Colorado.

Spruce stumps dominated the larger diameter classes but had less butt rot than sub-alpine fir stumps. Decay fungi contribute to stem breakage in living trees with heart rot, and as saprots of dead trees.

Therefore, the results suggest that decay fungi play an important role in removing sub-alpine fir trees from the canopy of these wetter sub. to heart rots. Needles are blunt tipped, flattened, and 1 to inches ( cm) long (3 to 7 ft) high.

On gentle slopes below timberline, subalpine fir, Engelmann spruce, and occasionally lodgepole pine grow in north-south strips 10 to 50 m (33 to ft) wide and several hundred meters long approximately at right angles to the. This forest has Engelmann spruce, mountain hemlock, and subalpine fir.
