Description: Nine years of removal of infections and prevention of seeding of dwarfmistletoe from a young mixed Jeffrey-ponderosa pine stand failed to eliminate the parasite. Spread of the parasite back into the experimental plot from infected trees outside averaged about 0.9 feet per year. One tree in 23 appeared to show some resistance to infection. Jeffrey pine had almost twice as many infections per tree as ponderosa pine.
