 Whitebark Pine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The Whitebark Pine (Pinus albicaulis; family Pinaceae) is a species of pine tree that occurs in the mountains of the Western United States and Canada, specifically the subalpine areas of the Sierra Nevada, the Cascade Range, the Pacific Coast Ranges, and the Rocky Mountains (including the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem).
Whitebark Pine is a member of the white pine group, Pinus subgenus Strobus, and like all members of that group, the leaves ('needles') are in fascicles (bundles) of five, with a deciduous sheath.
One consequence of this is that Whitebark Pines often grow as clumps of several trees, originating from a single cache of 5-10 seeds; this assists tree survival at tree-line, with the cluster of trees providing shelter for each other where a single tree might not survive.
