Scientists from the National Park Service and the U.S. Geological Survey have reconstructed the recent migration history of ponderosa pine trees in the central Rocky Mountains. Their recently published study on the movement of this species, through centuries and across complex terrain, is unprecedented in its methodology and scope. The investigation informs an uncertain.

    Lodgepole pine develops a shallow root system which is susceptible to windthrow. Lodgepole is intermediate in water needs, requiring more than Douglas-fir and ponderosa pine. It can tolerate high water tables which allows it to dominate species such as ponderosa pine, redwood, or Douglas-fir on soils kept wet by an underlying hardpan. Introduction. Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex Lawson) is the most wide-ranging pine species in North America [] and is both ecologically and economically important [].Ponderosa pine occupies montane environments throughout most of western North America, from southern British Columbia to the U.S.-Mexico border, with scattered populations extending eastward onto the Great .
