Dwarf Mistletoe and Cytospora Canker Decrease Grand Fir Growth in Central Oregon
Grand firs with high live crown ratios (LCR) and low dwarf mistletoe ratings (DMR) grew the fastest over the past 25 years while trees with low LCR and high DMR grew the slowest; LCR was the more important factor. However, even trees with high LCR showed markedly reduced growth rates when DMR was high. Mean age when a branch became infected with dwarf mistletoe was 8 years, and infected branches lived an average of 11 years. About 9 percent of the branches with dwarf mistletoe also were infected by the secondary canker fungus, Cytospora abietis. Forest Sci. 30:1071-1079.
