Mark record


Bark beetles continued as the biggest killer of merchantable timber in the Kamloops Forest District, with infestations in spruce and pine. Spruce budworm defoliation was more widespread in 1976. Hemlock looper, blackheaded budworm and a pine sawfly caused extensive defoliation of conifers. Tussock moth and false hemlock looper infestations collapsed.
