Stand characteristics associated with mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins), infestations within a 2.15 ac (0.87 ha) plot were analyzed to determine characteristics most strongly correlated with the infestations. Trees per acre, basal area, quadratic mean diameter, minimum diameter, and the range of diameters in MPB infested groups were significantly different from those in noninfested groups. Maximum diameter was not different between infested and noninfested groups. The results are discussed in regard to the mountain pine beetle-host relationship and stand management. For. Sci. 42(3):310-327.
