Recleaning the Dwarfmistletoe Control Area on the Mescalero Apache Reservation, New Mexico
Abstract:Development of latent and missed injections necessitated recleaning an area of 9,509 acres comprising a large-scale test of dwarfmistletoe control 6 to 9 years after the original cleaning (1952-1955). Recleaning involved cutting 177,357 trees and pruning 18,336 more, but it apparently reduced dwarfmistletoe injection to less than one percent--the same level achieved originally. Cost of the recleaning was $7.09 per acre as compared with $5.26 for the original operation.
