In northern New England spruce is more esteemed than any other tree by both foresters and land-owners. It forms the basis of the pulp and paper industry, is in demand for lumber and piling; red spruce clothes steep mountain sides in the east and is the most important species in watershed protection and for scenery. Species of spruce are also extensively planted around reservoirs, for timber production and windbreaks. Spruce is a popular tree in forestry. Thus when any pest threatens to kill spruce, and has actually demonstrated its capacity to do so over large areas something ought to be done about it. The following report on the spruce sawfly attack in New Hampshire during 1938 and what was done about it will be of especial interest to foresters in the spruce region.
