Description
 
Over the last 15 years, spruce bark beetles have killed huge numbers of spruce trees, the dominant conifer across south-central Alaska. From 80 to 90% of the trees are dead in large areas on the Kenai Peninsula. Scientists have been working on many aspects of the spruce bark beetle outbreak, including new control methods, wood product opportunities, and spruce regeneration. Forest managers found conflicting community responses, which frustrated forest managers who felt they had reached out to communities, and forest managers’ decisions and actions frustrated local community residents. “The Kenai Peninsula experience is an important story to tell with implications for handling forest health problems in other places.” Illustrations.
