This is an exhaustive report of the forest insect and disease situation in the years between 1936 and 1987 for Quebec's Administrative Region 01. It presents an orderly synthesis of all observations made in the region. This report will enable foresters, researchers, and woodlot owners to better assess the importance of forest pests and the potential danger they represent, and to quickly find complete and precise information on problems that may appear in the region's forests.

The entomological and pathological problems are arranged one after the other in alphabetical order for each tree species, which are also in alphabetical order. There are 13 maps indicating major problems, an alphabetical list of codes, and an index of both Latin and common names of species.
