DescriptionSince white pine is one of the most desirable tree species for the Lake States region, it is unfortunate that fear of the blister rust disease has greatly limited the amount of white pine planted. Research has shown that, in many areas, loss from the disease has not been great even where pine stands have not been protected through ribes eradication. Conversely, in other parts of the Lake States, present control through eradication has not worked as well as is desirable. This paper presents procedures for specialized blister rust control that will permit growing white pine with minimal losses to rust at the lowest possible protection costs presently available.
