Fusiform rust ( Cronartium quercuum (Berk.) Miyabe ex Shirai f. sp. fusiforme) infection occurs on 57% of planted slash pine ( Pinus elliottii Engelm. ) and on 11 % of planted loblolly pine ( Pinus laeda l.) trees on non-old-fields in East Texas. Future utilization of these planted pines may be affected by the rust infection rates.
