Prunus armeniaca Linn.  is a valuable oil seed producing tree species, planted in hilly parts of the Chakrata region of Dehradun district of Uttarakhand, India. Mistletoes attack various tree species and severely affect productivity. Aim of the study was to identify attack of   mistletoe to important tree species. A survey was conducted in the Kathiyan and adjoining areas of Chakrata Forest division.  It was reported that all the mature trees were invariably infested by the mistletoe.  Species is identified as Viscum album Linn Suitable preventive measures are suggested to prevent the spread of mistletoe. 

 

Key words:  Mistletoe, Partial parasite, Genetic improvement
