Mark record


Bark beetles accounted for most of the tree mortality in the Kamloops Forest District in 1975. Mountain pine beetle attacks increased in lodgepole and western white pine stands. Western spruce budworm defoliation of Douglas-fir continued unabated, while infestations of Douglas-fir tussock moth and western false hemlock looper declined.
