    Photo provided/Susan Ballinger This grove of whitebark pines on the northwest-facing slope of Mission Ridge burned in September 2012. You can see that multiple tree trunks grouped together, as they all arose from a single Clark’s Nutcracker seed cache. This wildfire opened up the forest floor to sunshine, making way for a new grove of whitebark pine, once Clark’s nutcrackers replant the slope with seed caches.

    Photo provided/Susan Ballinger Our Washington native pine tree cones: Upper left, ponderosa pine; lower left, western white pine; upper right, lodgepole pine; lower right, remains of whitebark pine cones after either Clark’s nutcrackers or tree squirrels have removed the scales and harvested the seeds. Stone pines, such as whitebark, rely on a nutcracker to harvest and plant its seeds because the cones don’t open on their own.
