Recovery of White Bark Pine (WBP) after Wildfire

Project Reference Number: 2020-39

Project Status: Active

Led by: Alana Clason

Funder: BC MoE Parks, Society for Ecosystem Restoration in Northern BC (SERNbc)

The project team is working with many partners and agencies involved in whitebark pine recovery. The focus of this project is on studying 10-year-old WBP restoration trials post-fire (Nadina District), and younger ones in provincial parks (Atna PP, Nanika PP). The team is also looking at impacts from 2018 fires in Tweedsmuir Park and the potential for WBP restoration.
