Serbian Spruce is as Vulnerable as Sitka Spruce to Damage by the Sitka Spruce Weevil

Serbian spruce (Picea omorika) was first damaged naturally by the Sitka spruce weevil (Pissodes strobi) at about 15 years of age in an area on Vancouver Island where this weevil commonly attacks Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis). By about 20 years of age, all 35 trees in the observation group had been damaged at least once. Serbian spruce cannot therefore be considered a suitable replacement for Sitka spruce in areas where attack by the Sitka spruce weevil is a forest management concern. West. J. Appl. For. 7(1):5-6.
