The white pine blister rust is a plant immigrant that is in America to stay and bids fair to become one of our major forest enemies. Control measures are possible at costs which ordinarily make it profitable to continue commercial production of the five-needled pines, but waiting for the rust to strike in a new region may make its control unprofitable. In this paper the author, with many years of experience in active charge of blister rust studies, points out the gravity of the situation, calls attention to some important misconceptions, and gives precautions in establishing plantations.
