"The forests of the Pacific Northwest display a timeless beauty. They've been known to take your breath away... Yet hidden within these forests are fatal diseases caused by various pathogens that travel root-to-root, infecting large pockets of seemingly healthy trees."

Thus begins the documentary "The Rotten Truth: Control of Common Forest Root Rots of the Pacific Northwest." In the Pacific Northwest, many types of root disease occur, but three stand out as being the most damaging and widespread. Their common names are Laminated Root Rot, Armillaria Root Disease, and Annosus Root and Butt Rot. This videotape explains how to recognize the presence of the fungi that cause these root diseases, as well as how to manage your forest to prevent or control further infection.
