Early Comparison of an Idaho and a Coastal Source of Western White Pine on Vancouver Island
Abstract:Height and survival of 11-yr-old F2 blister-rust resistant western white pine (Pinus monticola) from Idaho was compared with a locally collected seedlot from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. There were no differences in total height or survival between the two sources. Blister-rust infection of both sources was minimal. This suggests that material from Idaho could be used as an immediate source of resistant planting stock for coastal B.C., until a blister-rust resistance breeding program is producing adequate quantities of seed in B.C. West. J. App. For. 2:20-21, Jan. 1987.
