    Description

    An average of 10 percent of longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) seedlings in several natural populations remained nearly free of brown-spot needle blight (Scirrhia acicola (Dearn.) Siggers) year after year, despite high injection levels in the population as a whole. In one study, these individuals averaged 8 feet taller at age 24 than surviving trees that were less resistant to the disease.
