Title: A system for predicting the amount of Phellinus (Fomes) igniarius rot in trembling aspen stands

Author: Anderson, Robert L.; Schipper, Arthur L. Jr.;

Date: 1978

Source: Research Note NC-232. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: The occurrence of Phellinus (Fomes) igniarius white trunk rot in 45- to 50-year-old trembling aspen stands can be predicted by applying a constant to the stand basal area with P. igniarius conks to estimate the total basal area with P. igniarius rot. Future decay projections can be made by reapplying the basal area of hidden decay for each 6 years projected. This paper describes the methods used to determine the constant and how to use it in the field.

Keywords: Populus tremuloides, decay, projection
