In late March 2010, Forest Investment Account, Innovative Project MC 6851008 was undertaken in the Mid- Coast TSA to survey low-elevation cutblocks for infestations of western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla [Raf.] Sarg.) by hemlock dwarf mistletoe (Arceuthobium tsugense (Rosendahl) G.N. Jones subspecies tsugense, HDM). Using low-level helicopter surveys, we identified sites potentially suitable for future establishment of HDM monitoring plots and/or HDM seed traps. These results will facilitate further HDM monitoring projects. The current project report outlines methods and results for the Mid-Coast HDM surveys
