This two-part report is directed to forest managers, as well as to others concerned with the practice of forestry and the forest environment.

The first part, written in nontechnical language, covers all aspects of problems associated with the mountain pine beetle, including procedures and guidelines for coping with this insect, along with a selected reading list.

Described in the second part are the biological interactions that occur when bark beetles attack trees. This section with its bibliography forms the basis for part one and can be referred to if satisfactory decisions cannot be made with the first part alone.
