Eastern dwarf mistletoe was found on 15.4% of the red spruce stems in a predominantly 70- 80-year-old softwood stand in eastern Maine. Infected trees rarely show decline symptoms or are killed by the parasite. Dwarf mistletoe was found on red spruce in 13 additional locations in the state. Infected trees can be detected by the presence of small (<1-2 ft diameter) witches' brooms. Extent of dwarf mistletoe infections on red spruce is more common than previously reported. Management of spruce regeneration, natural and planted, should include assessment and control of dwarf mistletoe on residual red spruce. North. J. Appl. For 8(3):123-125.
