    Description

    Optimal level of expenditure to control damage to commercial timber stands by the southern pine beetle was determined by models that simulated and analyzed beetle attacks during a typical season for 11 Southern States. At a real discount rate of 4 percent, maximized net benefits for the Southern region are estimated at about $50 million; at 10 percent, more than $30 million. Methods and costs for detection, evaluation, and suppression of beetle infestation are discussed. Tables of optimal level for the 11 States are included.
