Following Hurricane Eloise (September 1975), severed and downed trees died and were infested by insects in a 25-year-old, thinned, slash pine plantation in west Florida. Most severe damage resulted from a "hurricane-tornado". Vertical and free-leaning trees were not infested by insects from September through the following May, a period characterized by above-normal precipitation.
