COMMENT BY POSTER: Anyone having problems Swiss Needle Cast (an off-
colored rust-like fungi infecting Douglas fir needles, especially common
when trees are stressed by drought) would do well to attend. This
pathogenic fungi is becoming more common in the Willamette Valley, and
is adversely affecting the quality of Christmas trees grown here.
