This guide, written for non-foresters, is about the management of the mountain pine beetle on small-scale woodlands including woodlots, private lands, and First Nations lands. If your small woodland lies adjacent to or within areas of significant mountain pine beetle infestations, information on prevention, detection and management will help you reduce losses to this pest.
This guide will not tell you everything there is to know about the mountain pine beetle but will help you detect the presence of the insect in your stand and aid you in making decisions. More detail is available from the resources listed at the back of this guide. There you will find contact information for both key organizations and government agencies.
