Description

Provides guidelines for integrating practices for managing mountain pine beetle populations with silvicultural practices for enhancing multiple resource values of lodgepole pine forests. Summarizes published and unpublished technical information and recent research on the ecology of pest and host and presents visual and classification criteria for recognizing susceptibility status of lodgepole pine stands according to habitat types and successional roles of lodgepole pine. Reviews appropriate silvicultural systems and practices for commercial and noncommercial forest land designations and special administrative areas and outlines a systems approach for data acquisition, analysis, and management decisions in a process leading to integrated pest management of the mountain pine beetle.
