DescriptionThe Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, in cooperation with Federal and State forest-pest-control agencies, undertook a survey of blister-rust infection rates in the white pine region of the East during 1962 and 1963. Those engaged in blister-rust-control activities will not be surprised at the survey's results. We found that infection rates were significantly higher in high-hazard climatic zones than elsewhere. Hazard maps prepared by Charlton (1963) were used as the basis for delineating climatic hazard zones.
