However, the whitebark pine has been in decline due to white pine blister rust: whitebark pine mortality in some areas exceeds 90%.The Rocky Mountain Trench, also known as the Valley of a Thousand Peaks or simply the Trench, is a large valley on the western side of the northern part of North America's Rocky Trench is both visually and cartographically a striking physiographic feature extending approximately 1, km (1, mi) from Flathead Lake, Montana to the Liard River, just south of the British Columbia Coordinates: 54°30′N °30′W / °N .
