Two Pine Plantings Near Cultivated Red Currants in New York
Abstract:Since 1916, the writer has been convinced that the cultivated red currants are of no importance in the dissemination of the blister-rust fungus to white pine and that they constitute no danger to the growth of white pine. Extended studies have recently been made of the importance of these currants in the dissemination of the blister rust, especially from the point of view of the necessity or desirability of eradicating them from gardens. In the course of these studies, the data upon two pine plantings have proved to be of more than ordinary interest. In one case, the results are rather spectacular, and in the other, perhaps not decisive but still not uninstructive.
