Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta frit'cy, Hey 22, '.970 THE LETH5RI8SE KJSALS 3 Wood Parasite Hits Kootenays CRANBROOK (SpeciaD- Spruce bark beetle in East Koo- tenay's six public forests and private timber in epidemic pro- portions is launching massive indusUy warfare. A freak, and at the time un- observed north-south hurricane the length of the Crow's Nest Pass ranges of the Rockies from Elk River vicinity well into Montana in I960, is be- lieved cause of the existing epi- demic. Extensive blow-down with slow death of the spec- tacular belt of broken and fall- en trees established the natural condition for massive breeding of this always present wood parasite which is now at climax stage and invading standing timber. The entomology division of the Canadian .Forestry Service, B.C. Forest Service and East Kootenay Pest Control commit- tee, a voluntary organization supported by industry, has now prepared its strategy. Initial phase will be recon- naissance with helicopters, fix- ed-wing ail-craft and experi- mental and conventional photo- graphy to map forests most heavily attacked. Long-time programs of the various opera- tore will then be altered to log, initially, areas showing heav- iest attack. Committee plans call for ground inventory of problem areas, with the isolated Flat- head corner of the province, bounded by Montana, believed at present most seriously affected. The J. Neils Lumber Company Inc. of Montana is al- ready well into its emergency harvest since international boundaries don't stop insect in- festation.

Both were una ceptable to the town council.
