Thirty-four seedlots of western white pine (Pinus monticola Doug. ex. D. Don) were tested for frost hardiness to determine guidelines for seed transfer. Twenty-nine seedlots represented the coast and interior of British Columbia (BC), two were from coastal United States (US) and three from interior US. Detached needles were exposed to a series of freezing temperatures in a programmable freezer and relative hardiness was calculated as the length of injured needle expressed as a percentage of total needle length 10 days after freezing. Seasonal progress is hardening was tested using five dates in the autumn of 1989.
