Abstract:White pine nursery stock can be, and in many cases is being, protected from blister rust by a Ribes-free zone around the premises. Consistent intensive effort is required and the costs range from less than one hundred dollars to a thousand dollars or more for a single nursery. An annual follow-up is necessary. Only five-leafed pines so protected are allowed to be shipped out of infected States except where the shipment is consigned to a point in one of the several northeastern generally infected States.
All white pine nursery stock should be produced under protected conditions, not only to avoid the danger of introducing the blister rust into uninfected localities, but to avoid loss and disappointment on the part of the purchaser.
