Larval galleries tend to turn upward and downward depend-ing on if they are above or below the notch.

Rudinsky.   The proposed research focuses on sustainable management of forest resources in Utah and the Intermountain West. The value of these forests includes much more than just wood. The majority of this region's water comes from high-elevation forests and it can be argued that water, which plays a central role in the economy, politics and culture of the semi-arid West, is the most important forest.

The explosion of bark beetle populations in the Intermountain West is at the fore of natural resource management is- sues in the region. There are indeed many questions, none of which has a simple or straightforward answer.

The most important bark beetle pest of Douglas-fir is the Douglas-fir beetle. Dendroctonus pseudotsugae Hopkins. Beetles in fest and kill their host throughout most of its range in western North America.

Douglas-fir beetle in the intermountain west book Western larch may be attacked during beetle outbreaks, but brood development in larch is rare. At low population levels, beetles maintain themselves in windthrown or injured trees, or those. Douglas Fir Beetle Douglas fir is the host. Attacks by Douglas fir beetle are usually most abundant about mid-trunk, but seldom higher than a top diameter of about 8 inches.

Douglas fir beetles normally kill small groups of trees. During outbreaks, extensive mortality including healthy trees is possible. Douglas -fir Beetle Richard F. Schmitz and Kenneth E. Gibson The Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsuqae Hopk.) infests and kills Douglas-fir throughout most of its range in western United States British Columbia and Mexico.

Occasionally western larch trees are infested when growing among Douglas-fir under attack. Attacks in stand-File Size: KB.

Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and. Douglas-Fir Beetle The Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae) is the principal killer of mature Douglas-fir in B.C.

It usually attacks weakened or dying trees, but occasionally its populations increase to the extent that it infests and kills large numbers of healthy trees. The Douglas-fir beetle appears to occur in two situations: apparently healthy, large-diameter, host stands where isolated, infested dead-tree groups increase to several to a few dozen trees over a few years and then decrease; and in seriously stressed stands such as those suffering from insect defoliation or exposure to fire that did not ruin the phloem tissue.

In interior Douglas-fir forests, the primary insect pest is the Douglas-fir beetle (DFB; Dendroctonus pseudotsugae Hopkins, Curculionidae: Scolytinae), which utilizes Douglas-fir exclusively [ Bark beetle-caused tree mortality in conifer forests affects the quantity and quality of forest fuels and has long been assumed to increase fire hazard and potential fire behavior.

In reality, bark beetles, and their effects on fuel accumulation, and subsequent fire hazard, are poorly understood. We extensively sampled fuels in three bark beetle-affected Intermountain conifer forests and Cited by: Although statistically weak, the model results were ecologically interpretable and provided a range-wide context in explaining spruce beetle activity at some sites in the Intermountain West.

The adult is a stout, brown to blackish-brown beetle with reddish elytra, 4 to 7 mm long. The duration of the life cycle is approximately 1 year and two broods may be produced each year.

The Douglas-fir beetle overwinters primarily as young adults or as mature or nearly mature larvae. Douglas-Fir Beetle Attacks and kills Douglas-fir trees Name and Description—Dendroctonus pseudotsugae Hopkins [Cole-optera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae] The Douglas-fir beetle is a common bark beetle that kills Douglas-fir trees.

Adult beetles are cylindrically-shaped and about a 1/4 inch (6 mm) long. Symptoms Top of page Trees attacked by the Douglas-fir beetle are killed by a single generation of beetles.

The first evidence of infestation is the occurrence of groups of trees with yellowish-green, yellow or red foliage. The needles on successfully infested trees begin to fade and change colour about 1 year after they have been attacked.Resources are listed alphabetically by topic, including websites, publications, and videos, on over 40 different topics.

Three Key Resources: Washington State Consulting Forester and Silvicultural contractor Directory.In the Intermountain West, USA, interior Douglas-fir ordinarily does not experience high rates of mortality due to insects or disease.

However, during the past decade, insects have become increasingly active in Douglas-fir forests, with an area disturbed by insects currently estimated at million hectares [ 77 ].Author: Andrew D. Giunta, John D. Shaw.
