(1) Only those species which attain the stature of trees in Mount Rainier National Park are included. See page 134.

(2) This species has not, as yet, actually been found within the park. However, during the summer of 1937 several individuals were not ed just outside the park boundary in the Ohanpecosh district, near where the Ohanapecosh River cross the park boundary. The trees in question were so close to the boundary and the conditions within the park were so similar to those where the trees were growing that it is extremely likely that a more thorough search will reveal the presence of this species inside the boundary.
