Lloyd Hayes research >> Field maps for pruning areas, blister rust infection studies >> Work plan to look at changes in stand composition resulting from Blister Rust. Sugar pine trees from nine stands in two California study areas were assessed to determine the effects of pruning on the incidence and growth of white pine blister rust. Lower limbs up to 8 feet high were removed on alternate trees.
Blister rust is by far the most important disease, causing extensive losses each year. However, several other diseases including pole blight, root diseases, and needle blights and casts can also cause serious damage. Important diseases of western white pine are listed in table 1. The most important of these, with the exception of blister rust. Pine beetles are just a secondary pest. The blister rust and drought have weakened and stressed the sugar pines so much that the beetles move in and finish the tree off. In addition, if a tree has a major root fungus or blister rust infection, vascular tissue stops working properly and .
Rusts are considered among the most harmful pathogens to agriculture, horticulture and forestry. Rust fungi are major concerns and limiting factors for successful cultivation of agricultural and forest crops. White pine blister rust, wheat stem rust, soybean rust, and coffee rust are examples of notoriously damaging, economically important : Pucciniomycetes. No results have been reported for pruning sugar pine to reduce white pine blister rust infection. During the summer of , sugar pine trees were pruned at two study areas in California. At Blodgett trees were pruned in 7 different compartments. Two stands on Roseburg Forest Products lands near Lake Almanor were also pruned.

White pine blister rust is a fungal pathogen from Eurasia. The fungus was accidentally transported to North America around the turn of the 20th century on shipments of seedlings from Europe. Canadian foresters interested in restoring clearcut areas imported seedlings from Europe to replant with.
Unfortunately, instead of restoring forest resources, the seedlings unleashed a destructive pathogen. Effect of photoperiod and container size on sugar pine seedling growth and infection by white pine blister rust (U.S.D.A.

Cause Cronartium ribicola, a fungus attacks all five-needle pines including whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis), which is the most susceptible, sugar pine (P.
lambertiana), western white pine (P. monticola), eastern white pine (P. strobus), limber pine (P. flexilis), bristlecone pine (P. aristata) and floxtail pine (P. balfouriana. Two simple linear equations were developed to estimate a canker age from total length of a canker with the distal portion either alive or dead.
An appropriate sample of canker ages can be used to. Independent introductions of blister rust to both the east and west coasts ultimately resulted in a continent-wide epidemic of this destructive disease. To date, blister rust infects eastern white pine (Pinus strobus), western white pine (P.
monticola), sugar pine (P. Cronartium ribicola is a species of rust fungus in the family Cronartiaceae that causes the disease white pine blister rust.
Cronartium ribicola is native to China, and was subsequently introduced to North America. Some European and Asian white pines (e.g. Macedonian Pine, Swiss Pine, Blue Pine) are mostly resistant to the disease, having co-evolved with the : Pucciniomycetes.

Sugar pine trees from nine stands in two California study areas were assessed to determine the effects of pruning on the incidence and growth of white pine blister rust.
Lower limbs up to 8 feet high were removed on alternate trees. Six years following treatment, the number of infections in pruned trees was reduced compared to unpruned trees at one study area, but no blister rust was found at Cited by: 5.
Generally, white pine blister rust spores germinate on the plant surface and grow into the pine through the stomatal openings in the needles or a through a wound. The fungus then grows into the twig. The infected branch will often swell; after a year or more, the rust forms spores that are contained in blister - like sacks that erupt through the bark of the twig or stem.
White pine blister rust is a premier example of an introduced pathogen. Pathogens evolve with their hosts to strike some kind of balance, especially obligate parasites. There is clearly selection for ability to infect and cause disease.
Mountain pine beetle often colonizes larger pines that are infected with white pine blister rust. Life History: White pine blister rust is not native to the Pacific Northwest, but was introduced to British Columbia from Europe in It is native to Asia.
It spread rapidly throughout the range of western white pine and sugar pine in. Blister rust infected pine seedlings from European nurseries carried the disease to North America and management of the disease may be considered in nurseries.

White pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola; WPBR), a naturalized pine rust disease, has been infecting white pine saplings in several northwest Wisconsin counties this gh WPBR is common in the Lake States and can in some cases cause significant losses in white pine, taking several steps can help prevent infections before they start and manage them before damage occurs.
The spore load and level of white pine blister rust infection in this study would most likely be equivalent to a high hazard blister rust stand. While the high level of mortality observed in this study is common among artificial white pine blister rust trials (Kegley and Sniezko,Zsuffa, ), the spore inoculation load in these Cited by: Eastern white pine (EWP), Pinus strobus L., is an iconic forest tree in the north woods of eastern North America.

Abstract White pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola) is a major pathogen causing the dramatic decrease in populations of sugar pine trees (Pinus lambertiana) in the Sierra Nevada. This study presents pruning as a management tool to decrease the incidence of the blister rust on sugar pine.
A disease infection survey was performed on each site to estimate the level of white pine blister rust infection. The survey protocol generally followed SMITH and HOFF-MAN (). Strip transects were used to estimate stand infection levels by categorizing 50 trees on each site as 1) alive and clean: no evidence of blister rust; 2) infected.
The example of P. monticola and P. lambertiana resistance to white pine blister rust over 15–20 years in the field trials reported here provides guidance on durability, stability, and usability of genetic resistance that can be applied in examining future outputs from resistant programs for other non‐native pathogens or by: 2.
Damage and Importance: White pine blister rust has been devastating to sugar pine since the disease entered northern California around Although the spread of blister rust in the Sierras has been slow and erratic, infections have been reported over the entire range of the species, except a few isolated populations.
