Abstract:Hydraulic excavation of the upper root systems of 5 groups of trees in a nearly pure, 50-year-old stand of Port-Orford-cedar disclosed abundant intraspecific root grafting. Tree roots on a sizable area are intergrafted to form an almost continuous root network which serves as a path for vegetative spread of Phytophthora lateralis. Frequency of grafting decreases in a straight line relationship with increase in distance between trees. Forest Sci. 22:276-278.
