A common Malady of Pine
« on: August 19, 2001, 02:02:08 PM »
Does anybody want to describe this common malady of pine which has caused great economic impact on the pine lumber industry and has led to efforts to breed resistance?

This would be a good use of Genetic Engineering.

Appears as though a FUSE would FORM if not carefully handled!  Subtle as I can be without jumping out with it, if I am right.

AND I HAVE ONE MORE POST TO BECOME A FULL MEMBER!  I am so proud.

Hey, I so this stuff for a living.  I wanted to give other folks a clue and a chance.  It is fusiform rust, and can be talked about at: http://www.bugwood.caes.uga.edu%2Fsouthern%2Fdiseases%2Fdiseases.html.

Now, I know there are easier sites, I just haven't found them.

Or, http://forestry.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bugwood.caes.uga.edu%2Fsouthern%2Fdiseases%2Fdiseases.html.

this particular disease has devistated young plantations in the south, where wind damage increases with age, it affects the stem and major limbs, causing a point of breakage.

Way to go Don, congratulations on being a full member.  I knew that post had to be worth a 50th one :D

I know it's your living but I'm just glad we have trustful knowledge on this stuff around here.  You guys that have made it your living are the ones we depend on to make sure we are right.

I was reading some of the sites too and was surprised to find that the U.S. Gov. actually had a pretty good write up on this.

Since Oaks are an intermediate host it is recommended that Oaks be removed from the land where pines are to be grown.  That's sure not going to settle good with people who don't understand the economics of Fusiform Rust.  

That is where we get into a lot of trouble I think.

Economically, from a commercial agriculture point of
view, some species are not compatible.  It would seem as if all trees would get along good together since they all make a forest, but I guess it's like people making up the world, some times they just don't mix too good.
