Dwarfmistletoes: A Silvicultural Challenge
Abstract:Dwarfmistletoes are one of the most serious diseases in conifer stands of the western United States, but they can be controlled at certain periods in the rotation of a stand through silvicultural tools now available to forest managers. The author discusses important publications about dwarfmistletoes and their control, and suggests steps to achieve adequate control programs. Research needed to improve existing guides and to start feasible control projects is described. Until someone devises other control methods that will produce results faster, silvicultural methods can achieve better total production in infected stands.
