Three Important Quarantine Diseases of Artificial Pine Forests and their Controls
The pine tree is an important tree species in China. In recent years, in order to quickly obtain a lot of woods and higher economic benefits, a large area of artificial pine forests is created in different places, coupled with the productivity decline of our country’s artificial pine forests and the formation of fragile forest ecosystems, which lead to serious plant diseases and insect pests. Some quarantine diseases spread quickly, causing huge losses to the production of artificial pine forests. This paper provides an overview of pathogennies, symptoms, occurrence situations of three important quarantine diseases of artificial pine forests occurring in Hunan province, and proposes control measures, which provide references for taking further effective measures to control artificial pine forest diseases.
