Dwarf mistletoe infections can retard growth and reduce seed production and wood quality; heavy, long-term infections can kill trees. Some dwarf mistletoe species induce abnormal tree growth at the point of infection, and produce a structure known as a witches’ broom. Ponderosa pine dwarf mistletoe (generally referred to as southwestern dwarf mistletoe to distinguish it from a different species affecting ponderosa pine in California and the Northwest; it has recently been referred to as pineland dwarf mistletoe by some) has long been recognized as the most damaging disease of ponderosa pine in the Southwest.

In western forest ecosystems of North America, numerous dwarf mistletoe species are considered to be serious forest-borne disease agents.

Severe dwarf mistletoe infection can result in a reduction in tree growth, premature tree mortality, reduced seed and cone development, reduced wood quality, and increase the susceptibility of the host tree to pathogen and/or insect attack.

Dwarf mistletoe is the most widespread parasite that causes branch and stem deformation. It germinates on ponderosa pine branches and forces its roots into the phloem of the host branch, creating stem cankers that leave the wood weak and unsuitable for use as lumber. This weakens the tree and leaves itFile Size: 96KB.

Ponderosa, lodgepole, limber, pinon pines and Douglas-fir are the most common trees affected by dwarf mistletoe in Colorado. Dwarf mistletoe is a host-specific parasitic flowering plant that spreads by forcibly ejected seeds.

The effects of dwarf mistletoe include growth reduction, loss of wood quality, poor tree form, predisposition to other.

The common dwarf mistletoe, A. minutissimum, is one of the smallest plants having specialized water-conducting tissues. Its flowering stems extend less than 3 mm (about 1 / 8 inch) from its host plant. The fruits of most Arceuthobium species are about 4 mm long, and each contains a bullet-shaped seed covered with a sticky substance.

Pressure that builds up inside the maturing fruit causes the. The Biodiversity Heritage Library works collaboratively to make biodiversity literature openly available to the world as part of a global biodiversity community.

Reduction of ponderosa pine dwarf mistletoe with the plant growth regulator ethephon. Aerial shoots of dwarf mistletoe vary in size (5 to 8 cm high), colour (usually greenish-yellow), and pattern of branching. For example, Douglas-fir dwarf mistletoe plants are often small and inconspicuous, larch dwarf mistletoe shoots are purple or green, and those of lodgepole pine dwarf mistletoe are arranged in a whorled pattern.

The Truth about Dwarf Mistletoe. Dwarf Mistletoe is a major problem in Colorado forests on Ponderosa and Lodgepole Pine.

It is a small, parasitic flowering plant. The plant grows into the bark and phloem of the tree, where it produces roots which provide the parasite with water and nutrients.

Dwarf mistletoe also attacks true fir and western larch in. The only chemical approved for use against dwarf mistletoes is the ethylene-releasing growth regulator, ethephon, which can cause abscission of the shoots and delay fresh seeding for years, but there is eventual re-growth from the endophyte.

The Dwarf mistletoe plant is also very dangerous to the ponderosa pine. It is a parasitic plant that causes branch and stem deformation of the ponderosa pine.

It forces its roots into the phloem of the host branch causing instability of the wood. This causes the tree to be susceptible to fungal infections and attacks by insects.

The ponderosa. The only chemical approved for use against dwarf mistletoes is the ethylene-releasing growth regulator, ethephon, which can cause abscission of the shoots and delay fresh seeding for years, but there is eventual re-growth from the endophyte.

Because of its rarity in Arizona, it is considered as an endangered species in the state and is protected by the Arizona Plant Law (McDougall ). releases ethylene, a plant growth regulator affec-ting many physiological plant processes (6).

When sprayed on intact clusters of leafy mistletoe, ethephon at 2% a.i. can cause com-plete abscission of the aerial parts of the parasite (3). Stress on the host is thus reduced, and mistletoe seed production is eliminated or delayed.
