Residual Douglas-fir and lodgepole pine are dwarf mistletoe-infested and pose a threat to existing regeneration. Felling or girdling these residuals, along with sanitation/thinning of dense patches of regeneration, will reduce dwarf mistletoe intensity and increase future volume yields. Present net worth of the projects ranges from -$1 to $39 per acre. Benefit/cost ratios range from 0.99/1 to 1.42/1. Funding with CFPM money is recommended.
