Pinaceae -- Pine family

    Russell T. Graham

    Western white pine (Pinus monticola), also called mountain white  pine, Idaho white pine, or silver pine, is an important timber tree. Its  lightweight, nonresinous, straight-grained wood exhibits dimensional  stability that makes it particularly valuable for sash, frames, and doors,  interior paneling, building construction, match wood, and toothpicks.  Western white pine grows rapidly to a large size; one of the largest  standing trees measures 200 cm (78.6 in) in d.b.h. and 72.8 m (239 ft)  tall in the mountains near Medford, OR.
