Marking Ponderosa Pine To Combine Commercial Thinning and Control of Armillaria Root Rot
Abstract:Root rot caused by Armillaria mellea (Vahl. ex Fr.) Quél, in natural ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) can be reduced by removing diseased trees during commercial thinning. Critically situated infected trees are pushed out to interrupt vegetative spread among the roots and to kill the fungus through exposure.
