DescriptionWhite pine blister rust limits the reproduction of white pine in many areas by killing young trees. In other extensive areas unjustified fear of the disease limits white pine planting. An ability to differentiate the sites on which white pine blister rust (caused by Cronartium ribicola Fischer) might be serious from those on which the disease might cause little damage would be of great value. Sites on which rust will not spread seriously could be recommended for the planting of eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.) without the expense of eradicating nearby ribes bushes. Likewise, funds need not be spent for ribes control in existing white pine stands and nearby sites where severe damage is unlikely.
