Rhizina Root Rot of Little Consequence in Washington and Oregon
Abstract:In 1973 the root pathogen, Rhizina undulata, was found fruiting on 64 of 277 recently burned Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] Franco) clearcuts on national forest and state-owned lands in western Washington and Oregon. Frequency of infested clearcuts within the surveyed area increased with increasing latitude. On clearcuts where the fungus was detected, it was usually associated with only minor seedling mortality. Changing current burning practices to avoid losses caused by this fungus is not warranted.
