Hello everyone. Thanks in advance for any help.
Does anyone have experience with or knowledge of this parasitic growth?

  • It is yellow and twiggy.
    These are not yellow pine needles, but the yellow growths are parasitic, growing out of the pine bark.
    I have a tree in the Boulder Bay area infested with this, it happened pretty quickly, and the tree needs help.


This fungus or parasitic growth has infected one tree, but another tree right next to it is entirely unaffected (currently).

Thank you very much.
-Vince

Looks like Arceuthobium or dwarf mistletoe.
Don't know much about it but i would try to "Google" it for a solution .
Maybe a spray or ? mistletoe.
Good luck

Thanks very much. Now that I know what to search with, perhaps i can make some gains. I don't want this to spread to anyone else. Have a great weekend.

If you don’t have any luck with it you can call Marty Murray at Native Scapes. He is a licensed arborists. 909-547-3894

Thank you for your information, everyone. Here is some additional follow-up:

• I did attempt to call Marty Murray with Native Scapes, and was patched quickly through to someone who was immediately available to take my call.
• Mistletoe (Dwarf or otherwise) is the one single parasitic infestation category that they do not treat (because it is very difficult to eradicate).
• Known tactics to take:
— Wrap the mistletoe in a black plastic bag, as tightly as possible, to envelop the entire area of the branch that is infected. (This from Native Scapes)
— Remove infected branches
— Eventually having to remove the entire tree... (which requires a permit, but I need to read more on this)

Thanks all.

All my trees have it here on red ant hill, stunts growth and swells branches. Reproduces with exploding seedpods that cast seeds several feet when the pods are ripe. Seeds stick to whatever they hit and get washed (slimed?) to the branch by rain,where they sprout. Per a friend from forestry who's familiar with the penny pines dwarf mistletoe study area up 2n10, there is no chemical way of eradicating it. So i cut the deadwood and it keeps us warm...

When we left Von's today, at around 11:30, the traffic was backed up, going west, from Stanfield to almost Division. I would have to conclude that many people were coming up here via 38. Stetson Creek stated earlier but that when she came up the 38 they did NOT stop her for ID. Obviously traffic is being bc allowed up here via 38, maybe not officially, but it is happening.
