Lodgepole pine dwarf mistletoe, Arceuthobium americanum Nutt. ex Engelm., occurs in most of the forests containing lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl.) in western Canada. It creates stand management problems in the forests of the Upper Foothills and East Slope Rockies sections of Alberta, and in the Subboreal Spruce, Cariboo Aspen-Lodgepole pine-Douglas-fir and Interior Douglas-fir biogeoclimatic zones of British Columbia. The effect of past utilization of lodgepole pine on disease development and possibilities for control of the disease through stand management are discussed.
