Metadata (Data about data or how the map was made)

Inhabits coniferous forests from timberline down through the Ponderosa Pine zone in areas not inhabited by the Douglas' Squirrel. It is found in the Northeast Cascades, northeastern forests to the Idaho border, and the Blue Mountains. Also found in the Palouse in mixed forest.

Core areas included all forested zones within its range and the Palouse. In all zones, conifer forests are good habitats. Mixed forest, low density residential, and wooded parks are adequate.
