Whitebark pines trees are icons of North America's mountain landscape. They are considered both a foundational and keystone species for the critical role they play in the ecosystems where they occur. They stand at the center of a web of life that supports dozens of plants and animals, including the threatened Grizzly bear, the red squirrel, and Clark’s Nutcracker. Over the past several decades the whitebark pine has experienced severe declines and today faces the very real threat of extinction.

Hear directly from leading voices of the USDA Forest Service, American Forests, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation, and the Ricketts Conservation Foundation about what is at stake and why there is still time to save whitebark pine.
