Gum Spots in Black Cherry
Gum spot is a serious defect in black cherry logs wanted for highgrade uses such as furniture and architectural panels. The Prunus miner (Phytobia pruni [Gross]) is mainly responsible for gum spots and pith flecks, but attack by Dryocoetes betulae Hopk. and damage by climatic factors are suggested as other possible causes. Suggestions for silvicultural control include: cultural treatments such as early weedings and stand-improvement thinnings in young stands, removal of large rough dominants of sprout origin from older stands, which are most likely to have extensive gum spot defects; and development of new reproduction stands of black cherry in dense groups on sites zoned to avoid glaze damage.
