The European Larch Canker and its Relation to Certain Other Cankers of Conifers in the United States
The destructive European larch canker was first discovered in the United States in 1927, on European larch imported in 1904 and 1907 from Great Britain and planted in Massachusetts. In Europe this disease has been reported to attack Douglas fir and different species of pine, as well as species of larch. Investigation has shown that neither Douglas fir nor any species of pine is attacked by this disease. Prompt action in the destruction of the diseased larch appears thus far to have averted a general spread of European larch canker in this country. Methods followed in the United States and in Europe to control the disease are discussed.
