    Description

    Chemicals were applied once to the root collars of small-diameter ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) to prevent mortality caused by Armillaria obscura (Pers.) Herink Roll-Harisen (A. meilea sensu lato). After 10 years, none of the 15 treatments appeared to reduce mortality in treated trees vs. untreated trees. Diameter growth of surviving trees averaged 3.0 millimeters per year, and the spread rate of the fungus averaged 0.6 meter per year.
