    Description

    Stumps of Douglas-fir, western hemlock, Sitka spruce, and amabilis fir were sampled in precommercially thinned stands to determine the percentage of stump surface area colonized by Heterobasidion annosum. There were significant differences among species in the percentage of stumps colonized. Seasonal patterns were evident for each species; however, differences were not significant. Both the percent incidence of infection and the percentage of surface area colonized increased with increasing stump diameter. The results indicate that stump treatment to prevent infection is not necessary for Douglas-fir, but it should be considered for the most susceptible species, Sitka spruce and amabilis fir.
