The Port-Orford-cedar stands on federal, state, and private lands in northern California were surveyed in the spring of 1980 for Phytophthora root rot caused by Phytophthora lateralis. The disease was present at six sites on the Gasquet Ranger District, Six Rivers National Forest, and Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, Del Norte County, and on six ornamental cedars at a residence in Eureka, Humboldt County.
