Growth rates and susceptibility of different larches (Larix spp.) to Pristiphora erichsonii (Hartig) were studied for 5 years in western Maryland when trees were 6 to 10 years old. Most rapidly growing were some geographic strains of L. leptolepis (Sieb. and Zucc.) Cordon L . decidua Miller, and their F2 hybrids, reaching heights ca. 20 ft in 10 years from seed. L. sibirica Ledeb., L. gmelini (Rupr.) Kuzeneva, and L. occidentalis Nutt. grew slower. Most susceptible to larch sawfly was L. x eurolepis Henry F2 followed by L. leptolepis, L. gmelini, and L. decidua; L. sibirica was less susceptible, and L. occidentalis most resistant. In L. leptolepis and L. decidua, some geographic strains were less susceptible than others. Among such less susceptible strains were L. leptolepis from the Okunikko region and L. decidua from the western Alps.
