Description: This report comprises a handbook for managing western white pine in northern ldaho and western Montana, under the threat of white pine blister rust. Various sections cover the history of the disease and efforts to combat it, the ecology of the white pine and Ribes, alternate host of the rust, and techniques for evaluating the rust hazard and attenuating it. The authors advocate an integrated control strategy based on local stand conditions. Options include planting resistant strains of pine, excising cankers, and chemical, mechanical, and silvicultural control of Ribes.
