Volume Losses from Fomes Annosus in Loblolly Pine in Virginia
Abstract:Volume losses due to Fomes annosus in three plantations and two natural stands gave indications of probable losses under near-ideal or ideal conditions of infection and spread. The maximum loss recorded for five-year period following initial thinning was 0.50 standard cords per acre per year. Volume losses due to mortality reached a peak at seven years and declined rapidly after the ninth year following initial thinning.
