Good afternoon, welcome to the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation virtual conference. We are only displaying the speaker on the screen, everyone else will be muted and off screen when the conference starts. If you are seeing a gallery of everyone go to the upper right and select "speaker" view. Open your Chat box (lower portion of screen) and we will use it for messages as well as questions for the speaker.

Hi Art- We have too many to show them all, but if you look on the bottom, you can open up a list of all participants. will that work?
Glenda Scott
42:31
Go to Whitebarkfound.org to make a donation!!! You all make the foundation function well!
Edyta Marcisz
42:34
Sorry, Jullie, but I can't see any tab with participants, I have only "Chat", "Rise hand", and "Q&A"...
Sabine Mellmann-Brown
42:59
Same here!
Julee Shamhart
43:37
Ahh, sorry. It's possible that attendees can't see the participant list.
Glenda Scott
43:38
New members invited- Rob will donate 1/2 of your Nutcracker membership for joining today. Again, our website whitebarkfound.org. Thanks Rob and all the new members!!!

all is good

Brian Kittler speaking
Glenda Scott
01:10:35
Unfortunately we do not have questions to Diana and Brian, but if you send in a chat question we will make sure they respond to you.
Edyta Marcisz
01:15:30
It's probably a question to all panelists: to what level there is cooperation between US and Canada? Will there be a presentation on WBP situation in Canada?
Eric Vincent
01:23:56
Daylight?
Connie Mehmel�
01:24:58
Remove competing species like subalpine fir.
Eric Vincent
01:25:28
Thanks

Jonathan Nesmith speaking now
Glenda Scott
01:37:34
All- if you have a question- please select All Panelists and attendees in the "To" panel of chat box. then everyone will benefit. thanks
Connie Mehmel�
01:38:33
Can you share a list of attendees when this is over?
Diana Tomback
01:39:01
BLM has nominated core areas in Idaho, and Region 4 of the Forest Service will have nominated core areas, which we are currently working on.The three R's are the basis of the US F&WS status
Glenda Scott
01:39:04
we think we can and will!
Nicole Hupp�
01:41:06
Thanks, Jonny! I'm curious about responsive park staff have been to this effort. (I'm very grateful that you are somewhere safe and you still prioritized talking today). -- Nicole
Glenda Scott

Emily Guiberson talking
Glenda Scott
01:43:02
Question to Jonny from Vladimir Kovalenko- is the rate of infect increasing in SIEN?
Eve
01:44:02
Is there a particular whitebark plot monitoring protocol that WPEF has developed/most approves of?
Diana Tomback
01:45:00
We will be developing a set of monitoring protocols that are fairly general to offer for Data Call 2B.
Eve
01:46:09
Great, thanks
Diana Tomback
01:47:17
We need to see how the Region 1 core area nominations play out in relation to the Bridgers.
Diana Tomback
01:48:52
That is complicated. We need to engage the leadership in this discussion. Right now it seems case by case.
Chloe Wasteneys�
01:49:16
Thank you, Diana!
Diana Tomback
01:49:43
Very important question Chloe. Thanks!
Mike Howe�
01:54:36
Question to all the panelists: if management will be possible in wilderness areas, will that extend to LPP that could support MPB population build-up?
Sabine Mellmann-Brown
01:54:54
The Mid-Swan DEIS is proposing to seed in the Mission Mountains Wilderness in one of the alternatives. The DEIS is available online on the Flathead NF website
Diana Tomback
01:55:06
We need to move along to the next talk, thanks.

Mr, Mangold I sure hope scion or seedlings had been collected from those sugar pine before they were destroyed
Glenda Scott
02:07:54
Question from David Walker to Dave Neal- any ongoing research on genetics of Cronartium?
Bob Keane
02:09:15
Please be back by 2:50 pm MDT

Crowdfunding sites like Experiment.com and MedStartr are changing the way science is funded. Crowdfunding is inclusive of patients and individuals to get total support from a community of individuals who are passionate about funding specific research.
Glenda Scott
02:27:26
Question from Tony Bertel: Some Wilderness areas have Research Natural Areas (RNAs) within them and management may be more likely/supported in RNAs. I worked with Rob Progar testing Verbenon SPLAT treatments vs pouches in the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness RNA
elizabeth wood
02:28:15
What is this panels opinion on planting grafted seedlings so they might start to produce cones in the field earlier?
Diana Tomback
02:34:52
Andy-Did you age your seedlings. Some small stems can be degenerate regeneration that is years old.
Karl Buermeyer�
02:37:05
Seems like it would make sense that seedlings would be more sensitive to heat and drought since they have less root volume and would be more susceptible to drying out. My observations of lower elevation PIAL stands in Jackson Hole were that there was no regeneration.
Glenda Scott
02:38:53
Katie Ireland now speaking
Bob Keane
02:45:26
To Elizabeth Wood, there are various seed orchards across the Northern Region that have done just that -- grafted seedlings to produce cones faster. So far, results are very good. Some of the orchards are actually producing. I hope others with better knowledge of these orchards can chime in....
Glenda Scott
02:54:30
To Elizabeth- if you meant to plant grafted seedlings operationally, grafted seedlings are very very expensive, which makes them perfect for a seed orchard but not operational.
Glenda Scott
02:56:00
Kristen Waring now speaking
elizabeth wood
03:00:08
Bob and Glenda, I am aware of the WBP seed orchards we have one on the NPCLW. And I am talking about planting operationally, but not heavily, maybe one every acre or so with standard seedlings planted as the rest. It seems to me that if we want to start making a difference and bring in the Nutcrackers it would benefit us to plant some trees than can produce cones/seeds in natural landscapes sooner
elizabeth wood
03:01:40
Other than cost is there a reason not to consider it?
Richard Sniezko
03:06:46
Elizabeth:At what age and size are they producing and how many cones - I would think a tree has to be decent size before having much pollen or seed cones?
elizabeth wood
03:07:14
MFM is very against it, but it was based on cost. I was wondering if rate of failure made unfeasible as well
Diana Tomback
03:07:53
There is a certain cost from producing cones rapidly--a growth/reproduction trade-off. For a protected seed orchard that might be OK, but in the wild under natural conditions, that could compromise survival in the trees.
elizabeth wood
03:08:00
Richard, when you graft scion onto root stock it maintains it age so even though it is small is will start producing seed sooner than a traditional seedling
elizabeth wood
03:08:51
Interesting Diana, that is something to dig into for sure
Richard Sniezko
03:08:53
Kind of - but the tree still needs to be big enough to hold many cones - (tall or wide crown)?
Richard Sniezko
03:10:05
It would be good to know when those orchards went in and how many bushels of cones they produce each year,etc
Glenda Scott
03:10:23
Vern Peters talking

Alina Cansler
03:26:01
Question for Kristen Waring: you mentioned reference conditions. Are moderately burned sites serving as modern reference sites? Are climate-analogue reference conditions being developed for southwestern white pine?
