    Western white pine (Pinus monticola) has been seriously affected by the white pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola), a fungus that was accidentally introduced from Europe in The United States Forest Service estimates that 90% of the Western white pines have been killed by the blister rust west of Clade: Tracheophytes. White Pine Blister Rust, also botanically referred to as Cronartium ribicola, is a fungus growth that is known to damage the White Pine. White Pine Blister Rust exposes the pine tree to a mortality rate between 50 and 80%. During the era rife with sea voyages, the White Pine was extensively felled for its high quality wood that was used to make.

    White pine blister rust was introduced from Europe to North America in shipments of infected pine seedlings during the decades around (Geils and others, ). Initially, the pathogen spread rapidly in the humid-temperate climates of maritime and Great Lakes regions. Taxonomic name: Cronartium ribicola A. Dietr Synonyms: Common names: white pine blister rust (English) Organism type: fungus White pine blister rust, a widely known tree disease in North America, is caused by the introduced fungus Cronartium ribicola.C. ribicola is a heteroecious (requires two hosts to complete its lifecycle) and macrocyclic rust fungus.. The two host groups of this fungus.

    White pine blister rust does not effect ribes too much, but it often kills young white pines and injures older trees. In some stands mortality of young white pines can be near %, though more and more resistant pines are showing up and being bred. Originally from Asia, wpbr was introduced into Europe and then brought over to the U.S. White pine blister rust is not a serious disease of currants and gooseberries; however, it is a very serious disease of white pines (Pinus strobus). Currants and gooseberries serve as an alternate host for the rust fungus that causes white pine blister rust. Therefore, planting currants and gooseberries in areas where white pines are present can lead to serious losses of white pines.

The disease, which is native to Asia, was accidentally introduced separately into eastern and western North America at the beginning of the 20th century.

A massive reforestation project spread these infected seedlings throughout the eastern U.S.A. Insimilarly infected seedlings were imported through Vancouver, BC and the disease started its spread through the Western White Pine forests.

White pine blister rust is a disease that attacks pine trees through their needles. White pine blister rust is apparently native to Asia. It has been introduced to Europe and then North America (see Other Issues below).

In North America it has invaded most white pine areas and is still making progress into the Southwest and into southern California. Management. blister rust arrived in North America (8). Harvest of western white pine increased at a rapid pace after blister rust was discovered in the Pacific Northwest and preferential logging of white pine left residual stands of shade-tolerant species such as western hemlock and grand fir that replaced the white pine.

White pine regeneration was further impeded by aggressive fire. Since the introduction prior to of white pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola) into the forests of western North America, many populations of native white pine species have seriously declined.

Because western white pine (Pinus monticola) and sugar pine (P. lambertiana) are highly valued timber species, their silviculture under intensive management is well‐ by: COmmon On overmature western white pine, but little mortality was found.

It was introduced into North America around Since its introduction it has devastated Western White Pine (Pinus monticola), Sugar Pine (P.

lambertiana), Limber Pine (P. flexilis) and Whitebark Pine (P. albicaulis) across the the Rocky Mountains, it has caused the decline of Whitebark pine which.Western white pine populations have been severely impacted by the introduced pathogen, white pine blister rust, and from historic timber harvesting.

Currently, western white pine is present in eight counties of central and western Montana, but at populations much lower than historic levels.
