“TIMBER LINE”—What is the average elevation of timber line and does it vary in different parts of the country?
It varies according to latitude, being higher in the tropics than in the colder zones. In the Rocky Mountains it runs from 9,000 to 12,000 feet. “Timber Line” as you perhaps know is where timber ceases to grow—being too cold.
