DescriptionThe knobcone X Monterey pine hybrid (Pinus attenuata Lemm. X P. radiata D. Don) has been outplanted in many places in California, among them the Redwood Experimental Forest and vicinity in north coastal California. Survival and growth in the early years were satisfactory. In 1966, red band needle blight was found to be infecting the plantations. Many of the trees have died. It appears that most of the trees on the best site will die from the needle blight. But one hybrid plantation so far shows no evidence of infection. It lies on a site four times higher in elevation and farther inland, where presumably there is less summer fog. The results suggest that small differences in climate may be the key factor in limiting needle blight infection.
