Lakeshore Effect on Nectria Canker of Yellow Birch
Abstract:In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, severity of nectria canker (Nectria galligena Bres.) infection on yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis Britton) was significantly higher in stands along the shores of Lakes Superior and Michigan than 5 miles or more inland. Depending on the amount of infection, managers should consider removing cankered trees during improvement cuttings or favoring less susceptible species.
