Pinus ponderosa is certainly not a rarity for Nebraska, but Betula papyrifera may be. The Nebraska-SD border is about 350 miles long - naming a county would identify the location more clearly.

Thank you for your comment and your interest in the Niobrara plot! The Niobrara plot is located in Brown County, Nebraska. You are of course correct that paper birch is far more rare than is Ponderosa pine in the state of Nebraska. Indeed, there is plenty of Ponderosa pine along the Niobrara River and in the Pine Ridge region of Nebraska. Our main point was that this lovely tree species is otherwise rare in the rest of the State outside of this area, and that its distribution follows the Niobrara River in the eastern parts of its range, where the Niobrara plot is. Please let us know if you’d like more information about the Niobrara plot.
