The European Pine Shoot Moth in Red Pine Plantations
Abstract:That the American forester must also be a good entomologist is indicated in this article. As soon as he has removed one obstacle to reforestation a new one appears. In this instance the author discusses the prospect of serious loss in red pine plantations due to an insect immigrant whose work seriously injures the terminal buds and stunts growth of many species of the yellow pine group. He gives some details on life history, habits, hosts and methods of control. Inasmuch as the European shoot moth will attack also western yellow pine, its spread is of national concern. Foresters, therefore, should acquaint themselves with it early to be better able to combat it.
