    Description

    The southern pine beetle (SPB) is the most destructive forest insect in the South. The SPB attacks all species of southern pine, but loblolly and shortleaf are most susceptible. The Southern Pine Beetle Information System (SPBIS) is the computerized database used by the national forests in the Southern Region for tracking individual southern pine beetle infestations. Historical SPB records are stored by Forest Health Protection (FHP) and have been used to document the effectiveness of SPB suppression techniques. The system is instrumental in forest plan implementation. It is a valuable tool for monitoring of forest management activities.
