This summary of surveys in young stands by the Forest Insect and Disease Survey (FIDS) provides an overview of pest problems remaining in young stands, most of which have been treated under FRDA I and II (Forest Resource Development Agreement). The survey was conducted as part of the forest health component of the forest resource inventory subprogram of FRDA II.
Two hundred forty-two young stands were examined. Most were randomly selected from British Columbia Forest Service (BCFS) Silviculture lists or Major Licensees Silviculture Information Systems (MLSIS). Of these, 43% contained problems severe enough to require further attention. This report details methods, summarizes findings, and provides discussions on pests of young stands on a provincial basis.
