Insect Attack and Damage to White-Pine Timber After the 1938 Hurricane in New England
Abstract:This paper analyzes the damage done by insects to white-pine trees and logs following the New England hurricane of 1938. Water storage gave good protection, and logs decked on dry sites at some distance from wind-felled trees suffered comparatively little. Covering decked logs with straw and boughs gave better protection than spraying with chemicals, which did not reduce damage sufficiently to cover the cost of treatment.
