Abstract:This paper gives a brief history of the destruction of standing timber resulting from an epidemic of the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus monticolae Hopk.) in the lodgepole pine stands of the Beaverhead National Forest, Mont. During the past decade the outbreak has swept through this area of 1,341,860 acres, killing approximately 57,756,000 trees above 3 inches in diameter. The total loss of merchantable trees 9 inches d.b.h. and above is estimated to be 77.3 percent.
