Pinus banksiana Lamb.
Distribution and Protected Areas – from Hamann et.al. 2005
Conservation Status Summary – from Chourmouzis et. al. 2009
“Jack pine is a rare, blue-listed species in British Columbia, although it is common and abundant in the rest of the Canadian boreal forest. The western edge of the species’ range extends into the BWBS zone in the northeastern corner of the province. The level of protection in British Columbia is low; therefore, ground truthing is recommended for this species. This may indicate that additional protected areas need to be created to protect this peripheral population.”
