DescriptionDwarf mistletoe surveys are conducted for a variety of vegetation management objectives. Various survey and sampling techniques are used either at a broad, landscape scale in forest planning or program review, or at an individual, stand, site level for specific project implementation. Standard and special surveys provide data to map mistletoe distributions and quantify disease severity. At a landscape scale, extensive surveys assess regional impacts, estimate mistletoe occurrence, intensity, and effects, and estimate future growth and yield. Intensive surveys evaluate stands, campgrounds, and other sites to design projects and monitor treatments.
