The Southern pine beetle attacked a small stand of timber on TVA lands at Norris Reservoir, Tennessee, in 1945. Moving from this point in a series of irregularly spaced jumps on a narrow northeasterly path, the infestation struck at 466 points, killing a total of 231 acres of timber on its 16-mile course, before it was brought under control. The characteristics of the infestation and the costs, techniques, and effectiveness of the control measures applied are presented.
