Dwarf Mistletoe Animation  


This animated image represents a stand of Douglas-fir in the Fremont National Forest as simulated with the South Central Oregon Northeastern California variant of the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) and the Dwarf Mistletoe Model. The images on the left are the results of a simulation with the Dwarf Mistletoe Model active and those on the right are the results with the Dwarf Mistletoe Model turned off, which is what you could reasonably expect without dwarf mistletoe present in the stand. The original stand has significant dwarf mistletoe infection, roughly 70% of the trees are moderately infected at the time of inventory. An additional characteristic of the stand is the presence of larger/overstory infected trees that hurries dwarf mistletoe spread and intensification on smaller/understory host trees.
