Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Inoculation Following Biocide Treatment Improves Calocedrus decurrens Survival and Growth in Nursery and Outplanting Sites

Commercial production of tree seedlings often includes various biocidal soil treatments for disease control. Such treatments can be effective in eliminating or reducing disease organisms in the soil, but may also eliminate non-targeted beneficial soil organisms, such as mycorrhizal fungi, that improve seedling performance, both in the nursery as well as the outplanted environment. The arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal (AMF) relationship has been verified for some important western coniferous species such as incense cedar (Calocedrus decurrens [Torr.] Florin), coastal redwood (Sequoia sempervirens [D. Don] Endl), and western redcedar (Thuja plicata J. Donne ex D. Don).
