    Before introduction of white pine blister rust, eastern white pine had been the major timber species in eastern Canada, New England, and the Great Lakes (Geils and others, ). Historically important products were ship masts and structural lumber; recently, the principal use has been for finish molding. The white pine blister rust disease (WPBR) is a classic example of a tree rust fungi. “Blister” describes the effect on pine bark after infection. “Rust” describes the physi-cal characteristics of the fruiting bodies on host tree bark or leaves. In the case of WPBR, the damage causing fungus is Cronartium ribicola.

    pines saved from blister rust exceeded the cost of pruning by four times. Licke (Putnam ) studied the benefits of pruning year-old eastern white pine in Minnesota to reduce blister rust-caused mortality. Pruning to one-half each tree height of all infected, prunable trees. Background. White pine blister rust (WPBR) caused by Cronartium ribicola (Cri) is a devastating fungal disease of five-needle pines (subgenus Strobus) around world. Since the early 20th century, when it was accidently introduced into North America, WPBR has spread over the continent where native five-needle pine species were distributed, with severe ecological and economic damages.

    White Pine Blister Rust (WPBR) is a fungus that mortally infects many 5 needle pines, including sugar pine (Pinus lambertiana). Resistance to WPBR in sugar pine is controlled by a single gene (qualitative) and a multi-gene (quantitative) pathway. Traditional methods for combating WPBR involve harvesting cones from potentially resistant trees. Whitebark pine, a foundation species at tree line in the Western U.S. and Canada, has declined due to native mountain pine beetle epidemics, wildfire, and white pine blister rust. These declines are concerning for the multitude of ecosystem and human benefits provided by this species. Understanding climatic correlates associated with spread is needed to successfully manage impacts from forest.
