Mountain pine beetle was again the most significant pest problem in the District, causing extensive tree mortality in lodgepole pine stands.

Black army cutworms damaged seedlings planted southeast of Golden. False hemlock looper defoliated Douglas-fir stands in Windermere Valley, and spruce budworm defoliated high elevation spruce-balsam stands along Spillimacheen River.

Scleroderris canker of pine was found infecting ponderosa pine at Canal Flats.
