Effect of Southern Pine Beetle on Timber Losses and Natural Restocking
In the South, the southern pine beetle has caused large losses of pine timber during epidemic years. Fortunately most of the pine forests have not suffered from these spectacular outbreaks. Less noticeable losses, however, occur every year. This paper presents information based on a 24-year study of the bark beetle in an endemic status in one area. In addition to records of timber losses, it shows that pure pine is more susceptible to attack than pine-hardwood stands and that pine does not restock the openings formed.
