If you have spent time in the mountains, you have met the whitebark pine. These conifers often look weathered with twisted, gnarled trunks and clusters of thickly bunched vibrant green needles. There’s something engaging about these beautiful trees that ventures beyond the scope of words; they seem irreverently alive despite the barren terrain they inhabit. Whitebark pines grow at higher elevations and in recent years have become endangered due to fire suppression, climate change, the proliferation of mountain pine beetles and a disease called white pine blister rust. Wend your way to the mountains with a thermos of tea and spend time with the pines.
