We established monitoring plots in red pine sapling plantations severely affected by shoot blight in Michigan and Wisconsin to assess the influence of residual overstory red pine and the presence of Sirococcus and Diplodia shoot blights on disease severity and their long-term impact on tree survival and growth.

Fourteen years after the initial. The impact of tree nutrition upon disease incidence and severity was investigated in a uniform, year-old Norway spruce stand near Frauschereck (13°17′47″E, 48°03′42″N, m a.s.l.) severely affected by Sirococcus shoot blight ().The site.
