Swiss Needle Cast Foliage Retention Metrics for Coastal Oregon

Metadata Updated: May 13, 2022

Nothophaeocryptopus gaeumannii is a common native, endophytic fungus of Douglas-fir foliage, which causes Swiss needle cast, an important foliage disease that is considered a threat to Douglas-fir plantations in Oregon. Disease expression is influenced by fungal fruiting bodies (pseudothecia), which plug the stomata and inhibit gas exchange. We measured foliar retention and the density of pseudothecia occluding stomates across 2- to 5-year-old needles from upper, middle and lower canopy positions of mature trees at three sites in the Oregon Coast Range and two sites in the western Oregon Cascade Mountains.
