Mark record


Bark beetles caused extensive mortality of lodgepole pine, Engelmann spruce, Douglas-fir and alpine fir throughout the Kamloops Forest District. Spruce budworm continued to cause severe defoliation in the Fraser Canyon - Carpenter Lake area but infestations declined near Adams and Shuswap lakes. A pine sawfly defoliated lodgepole pine near Vavenby and Clearwater River. A cooperative survey detected European pine shoot moth in pines at Kamloops and Kelowna. Foliar diseases were abundant on a variety of hosts and root rot infections were extensive in the Okanagan Valley.
