White pine blister rust is known to be very destructive to white pines, but few data are available showing the progress of the disease in young plantations of northern white pine. In six plantations it was found that a single exposure of young white pine to telium-bearing leaves of European black currants for 12 or 24 hours resulted in 4 percent of the trees becoming infected. Continuous exposure resulted in 69 percent infection. Within five years after infection, approximately one-third of the diseased trees had died.
