Mark record


Major pest problems in the District in 1976 were mountain pine beetle in the Stuart - Takla lakes and Valemount areas, conifer sawflies along the Fraser River east of Prince George, tent caterpillar and spruce budworm near McBride and large aspen tortrix in parts of the Peace River region.

A foliage disease was evident on alpine fir over much of the District in 1976, and winter drying resulted in damage to lodgepole pine in the Minaker and Prophet River valleys.
