Title: Phytophthora lateralis on Port-Orford-cedar.

Author: Hunt, John.;

Date: 1959

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes No. 172, p. 1-6

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Results from annual surveys of the destructive Phytophthora root disease of Port-Orford-cedar (Chamaecyparis lawsoniana (A. Murr.) Parl.) show that the disease is gradually spreading and intensifying within the natural range of Port-Orford-cedar. The disease became established on native trees in the early 1950's in the vicinity of Coos Bay, Oreg., and during its initial buildup invaded most of the low-lying area between Tenmile Lake and Port Orford. Since 1955 its progress, although less spectacular, has been characterized by gradual, steady encroachment into new areas.
