Abstract

Diseases are a major concern to forest managers throughout the lodgepole pine type. In many areas, diseases constitute the primary management problem. As might be expected for a tree that has a distribution from Baja California, Mexico to the Yukon and from the Pacific to the Dakotas, the diseases of chief concern vary in different parts of the tree's range. For this reason I would like to give first a capitulation of some of the common diseases of lodgepole pine; then I will discuss those of major importance and see what can be done about controlling them.
