Notes: Marking Guides to Reduce Armillaria Root Rot in Ponderosa Pine are Effective
Abstract:Following commercial thinning of a 60-year-old ponderosa pine stand that had been marked to reduce root rot, 268 stumps near infection centers of Armillaria mellea were uprooted and examined for infection. Infection decreased progressively with distance from suspected sources of infection and was absent beyond 7.5 m. The marking rules proved to be accurate when applied during normal forest operations. Forest Sci. 24:451-454.
