Insect Survey Due
On State Forest Lands
Staff personnel from the State
Forestry Department and the
U. S. Forest Service were to be
g'n on Monday, July 7, their an
nual cooperative aerial survey of
insect damage to Oregon's for-
e.'-tlands.
The survey will take approx
imately a month, according to
Insect and Disease Forester
Mike Vandehey, and will involve
a State Forestry single-engine
aircraft and a plane from the
U. S. Forest Service, each carrv
ing a pilot and two observers. Up
until this year, the survey has
oeen conducted using one plane
he added. One of the main rea
sons for using two planes is to
speed up the survey so its re
sults can be more auicklv dis
tributed to the districts.
The survey will cover all for
ested land in Oregon. It has
served since 1950 as an effect
ive means of keeping track of
trends in insect population. On
a clear day, observers can spot
damage up to three miles on
either side of the aircraft.. By
observing the kind of damage
that occurs, the species of trees
and the ground elevation, the
observer can make an educated
guess as to the particular cul
prit responsible for the damage,
Vandehey says.
Infested areas are mapped,
and maps are provided to the
districts and to industry. Vande
hey says ground checks are
made when observers are not
able to identify the insect spec
ies from the air, or when a new
or large infestation is sighted.
"Sometimes we have ground
checked where we thought a
certain insect was damaging
trees and find there were two
or three kinds of insects involv
ed," he said.
These surveys serve as a ba
sis for adjusting management
plans. For some infestations
there are no Dractical means of
control. In this case, Vandehey
says, the damaged trees can fre
quently be salvaged by logging.
State Forestry Pilot Bob Frank
lin says the surveys are flown
at elevations of 800 to 1000 feet
above the trees and speeds of
120 to 130 miles per hour.
This year the state will be
zoned into sectors and divided
up. part being done by the State
and part bv the U. S. Forest Ser
vice.
