CHELAN — The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest wants to replant a few hundred acres of high elevation forest with whitebark pine seedlings on the Chelan, Methow Valley and Tonasket ranger districts this fall.

Whitebark pine populations are declining across the Western U.S. They warrant protection under the Endangered Species Act, but are managed as a sensitive species due to the need to address more high priority listings, a news release from the U.S. Forest Service said.
