Although the northern white pine type is one of the most extensive in New England, specific funds for investigative work in white pine were not made available to the Forest Service until the fiscal year 1939. However, the white pine studies conducted by the Forest Service in the early part of the century and more recently by various agencies within the region have laid a foundation for the proposed work by the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station.
