    Description

    Introduction of Cronartium ribicola (white pine blister rust) greatly motivated development of tree disease control and research in America. Although foresters and pathologists have learned much in the past 100 years, more remains to learn. The most important lesson is that fear of blister rust has reduced pine regeneration more than the disease itself. Based on six decades of study, I share what I've learned on five topics of personal interest-the evolution of pines and rust, history of blister rust, effectiveness of eradication, influences of climate and Ribes, and importance of sustaining research.
