Indicators of Fomes annosus Root Decay and Bark Beetle Susceptibility in Sapling White Fir
Abstract:Decreased height growth and reduced length of branches retaining foliage were reliable indicators of root decay by Fomes annosus and susceptibility to bark beetles in unsuppressed white fir saplings growing in centers of the root disease. Decreased radial growth and elevated moisture stress were less reliable. Forest Sci. 22:365-369.
