Western white pine (Pinus monticola) is a principal host of Arceuthobium californicum in the Siskiyou Mountains of northern California and southern Oregon, and suffers extensive mortality in some stands. Whitebark pine (P. albicaulis) is a principal host and western white pine is a secondary host for A. cyanocarpum in northern California. Mortality of whitebark pine caused by this dwarf mistletoe on Mount Shasta, California, is as high as 58%. Western white pine is occasionally infected in A. tsugense-infested mountain hemlock stands in California and southern Oregon. However, no infection of western white pine occurred in A. tsugense-infested western hemlock stands in southern Oregon, indicating there are physiologically distinct races of A. tsugense parasitizing western hemlock and mountain hemlock. For. Sci. 34(2):429-440.
