Sequential aerial photography of dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium pusillum infested black spruce stands (Picea mariana [Mill.] BSP.) was used to measure the radial enlargement of circular mortality centers. Site index and stand density had no effect on the average 4.7 ± 3.3 ft/yr expansion rate. Methods for determining spread rates are discussed. For. Sci. 37(1):364-367.
