    Felling or girdling willow oaks which exhibited Polyporus hispidus cankers reduced sporophore production within 3 yr. Since spore dissemination was horizontal and downward, spores produced on felled trees did not spread as far as those from standing trees. Felling, therefore, is a more advantageous means of control.
