Spruce Budworm Larvae Sever Stems of Western Larch Shoots in Montana
Abstract:Spruce budworm larvae are severing stems of terminal and lateral shoots of young western latch in some western Montana forests. Rapid juvenile height growth and excellent form--two highly desirable characteristics of larch--are jeopardized. Severance of terminal shoots is producing trees with multiple leaders and crooked boles. Severance of lateral shoots is less common and less serious. The long-range impact of this budworm damage on larch regeneration is being studied.
