Budworm Control in Jack Pine by Forest Management
Abstract:Recent studies have shown conclusively that outbreaks of the jack pine budworm are closely correlated with an abundance of staminate flowers. The authors present new data on the relation between classes of trees and staminate flower production, in the light of which they recommend the prompt removal of trees of poor or declining vigor.
