Summary

Tree characteristics were compared between successfully attacked, unsuccessfully attacked, and unattacked trees. Percent of the bole covered with constant crown, crown volume, recent radial growth, and age were significantly different between successfully attacked and unattacked trees. Successfully attacked trees produced less induced resinosis than unsuccessfully attacked trees. Fast- and slow-growing subalpine fir were pheromone baited to induce attack. Although all baited trees were attacked, slow-growing trees were more likely to be successfully attacked than fast-growing trees. Fast- and slow-growing subalpine fir were inoculated with a blue-stain fungus. Lesion length was significantly greater in fast-growing trees than in slow-growing [...]
