Diseases in Forest Nurseries: Implication for Forest Managers

Continued sources of high-quality seedlings are needed for proper management of forestland in western North America.

Fortunately, organisms that cause important diseases within nurseries are usually not of concern once seedlings are outplanted on forest sites. Rather, they are similar to or the same organisms that elicit diseases on agricultural crops. This would be expected because forest nurseries are really agricultural enterprises, producing large numbers of plants using intensive cropping systems.
