In 1956, for the third consecutive year, a survey was conducted on jack pine, with the main purpose of supplementing information already obtained on distribution and abundance of jack pine sawflies in the various regions of Quebec. The territory investigated in previous years was extended eastward in 1956 so as to include new areas of the Upper St. Maurice, Jacques Cartier, Lake St. John and Saguenay regions.

The field work was performed by members of the Laboratory of Forest Zoology, Canadian Department of Agriculture, Quebec City, in cooperation with landholders' personnel. The survey staff included one forest ranger and five assistant technicians available part-time. Cooperators' personnel consisted of forest rangers, who were given special instructions prior to sampling.
