Description: Rhizopogon is a large genus mycorrhizal fung of particular importance to the Pinaceae. Rhizopogon species occur in both young and old forests, in diverse habitats and are present on every continent but Antarctica. Ths ecological amplitude was recognized early in the 20th century when Rhizopogon species were observed as dominant ectomycorrhizal fungi in exotic pine plantations. Establishing Rhizopogon in nursery inoculations at international nurseries has greatly benefited the establishment of North American conifer species around the world.

Keywords: bareroot nursery, container nursery, nursery practices, fertilization, pesticides, seeds, reforestation, plant propagation, native plants, tree physiology
