Common Insects and Diseases of Coastal Douglas-Fir FOREST HEALTH TT rees play an important aesthetic and biological role in our environment. Trees such as Douglas-fir can suffer from a wide variety of native and introduced pests.

    Dec 31,  · Douglas-fir beetle is not on the rise right now, but we may see it again soon.” Douglas-fir beetles inhabit burned and dead trees, building up their population. Once they reach large enough. beetles removed from the population by each trap. When the traps were deployed, seven trees in the Douglas-fir stand adjacent to the clear cut were baited with pheromones to initiate DFB attack. These trees were spaced about 7S m apart in a line roughly parallel Cited by:

    Douglas-fir beetle, Dendroctonus pseudotsugae Hopk., is the most serious bark beetle enemy of Douglas-fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco, in the Northern Rocky Mountain Region. Past out-breaks have been attributed to catastrophic disturbances such as windthrow, trees damaged by snow and ice, and stressed by drought. scale constraints on beetle population dynamics and failed to consider patterns of bark-beetle induced tree mortality within the larger context of landscape and ecosystem processes and tree decline concepts (Castello et al. ).The magnitudeand frequencyof bark-beetle outbreaks reflect the population .

QUICK GUIDE SERIES FM Douglas-fir Beetle About Douglas-fir Beetle Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae) is the most destructive bark beetle of mature Douglas-fir forests in western North America.

It is a native insect found throughout the range of its only host tree, Douglas-fir, from southern Canada to northern Mexico. Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae), another close relative of the spruce beetle and mountain pine beetle, is an important native bark beetle of mature Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) forests across most of the capitolchamberartists.comaks tend to be associated with mature Douglas-fir forests (average stand diameters greater than 14 inches at feet from the forest floor) coupled with.

Aug 01,  · Spatial relationships of Douglas-fir beetle (DFB), Dendroctonus pseudotsugae, infestations were examined over a year period on the Priest Lake Ranger District, a USDA Forest Service ranger district in Idaho, capitolchamberartists.com addition, population trends were examined on three other USDA Forest Service ranger capitolchamberartists.com by: The Douglas-fir beetle (Fig.

1) is normally present in forests at low den-sities, breeding in Douglas-fir trees that are injured or have recently died. Tun-neling by adults and larvae beneath the bark produces a characteristic pattern distinguishing the Douglas-fir beetle from other bark beetles (Fig.

The egg galleries excavated by adults are. 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.

Sep 01,  · The use of pheromone-based management strategies for the Douglas-fir beetle is allowing managers to actively manipulate Douglas-fir beetle populations in a way to reduce negative impacts on resource values for the first time.

Publications. Dodds, K.J. The Douglas-fir beetle, Dendroctonus pseudotsugae Hopkins, (DFB hereafter) is a major mortality agent of Douglas-fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirbel) Franco, across the Western United States [1, 2].

As a native insect and a natural disturbance agent, it is always present as an endemic influence, playing an important ecological role by killing Cited by: 6. on Beaver Mountain, Utah. The Douglas-fir beetle, Dendroctonus pseudotsugae. Hopkins, attacked a range of moder-ately fire-injured host conifers in Logistic regression models run for data illustrated that 1 year after the fire event the Douglas-fir beetle selected and attacked large-diameter Douglas-fir with 60%–80% bole char, 60% Cited by: In coastal Douglas-fir, outbreaks usually subside abruptly.

Resistance of the host tree evidently keeps the beetle under control, as the beetles do not thrive in green timber. In interior areas tree stress is an important factor affecting the extent and duration of an outbreak. Direct control of the Douglas-fir beetle has seldom been attempted.

To assess Douglas-fir beetle attack status from ground-level. • Look up the tree bole as high as possible for signs of boring. Initial attacks by Douglas-fir beetle typically occur high (~12 ft.) on tree boles with additional attacks above and.Douglas-fir has life history traits that greatly enhance resistance to injury from fire, thereby increasing post-fire survival rates.

Tools for predicting the probability of tree mortality following fire are important components of both pre-fire planning and post-fire management efforts. Using data from mixed-severity wildfire in Montana and Wyoming, Hood and Bentz ().
