Studies on the diseases of young hardwoods have been almost entirely neglected in spite of the fact that an ever increasing part of our forest area is rapidly being converted into this type of stand. The distinction between desirable and undesirable species has been drawn to a large extent on the basis of the prospective value of the wood produced, with less attention paid to the possibility of diseases. The existence of diseases of the type which injure the form and quality of the growing tree without destroying it completely introduces a hazard which has not been fully appreciated by many silviculturists.
