Description

Published by the Forest Service of the Agriculture Department, for the use by anyone preparing to prune white pine in forest areas to ensure proper growth. This bilingual comprehensive photo guide provides botanists, foresters, gardeners, or anyone seeking pictorial advice about how to best control white blister rust through the pruning process of white pine trees.

In this booklet you will find twenty-three (23) pages of well-defined colorful photographs detailing the best methods to prune white pine trees and prepare the areas surrounding the trees.

Produced by the U.S.D.A. Forest Service, Forest Health Protection, the spiral set of heavy paper is well suited to be used at a site in the field for those working to protect America’s forests.

The photos are accompanied by clarifying copy (overlaid on the photos themselves) in English and Spanish to further assist those pruning the trees with the essential details in order to properly complete the pruning process. Below you will find the photos that are presented within this guide:

  • Rust cankers with spores                                                                                                                    
  • Rust “look-alikes”                                                                                                                               
  • Rust cankers without spores                                                                                                        
  • Rust cankers on trunk                                                                                                                          
  • Infected trunks                                                                                                                                      
  • No rust: animal damage                                                                                                                        
  • No rust: normal resin                                                                                                                   
  • No rust: sun scald                                                                                                                            
  • Infected branches                                                                                                                          
  • No rust: needle disease                                                                                                                
  • No rust                                                                                                                                             
  • More rust cankers                                                                                                                      
  • Pruning: Determine which canker is closest to trunk                                                                 
  • Do not prune. Rust is in trunk                                                                                                  
  • Infected trees can be marked to “not prune.” Cut one whorl of branches, leaving
  • long stubs
  • Prune to half a tree’s height                                                                                                                     
  • Even branches below debris must be pruned.
