Description: Hemlock dwarf mistletoe, Arceuthobium tsugense (Rosendahl) G.N. Jones, causes a serious disease of western hemlock and several other tree species along the Pacific Coast of North America. This small, seed-bearing plant lives exclusively as a parasite on living trees. Throughout its range, hemlock dwarf mistletoe occurs in patch-like patterns in the forests. Some forests are severely infected, some sparsely, and some not at all. The incidence and severity of the parasite are greatly influenced by stand structure and disturbance history.

Keywords: Disease, decline, mortality.
