The possibility of vegetative propagation is demonstrated of two dwarf mistletoes (Arceuthobium americanum Nutt. ex Engelm. and A. douglasii Engelm.) from brooms on the conifers Pinus contorta Dougl. ex Loud. and Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco, respectively. The technique used was grafting of infected buds with short pieces of stem attached, onto stems of healthy hosts of the same species. Reference is made to the retention of the shoot-emergence patterns typical of the host-parasite combinations used.
