Field Guide to Diseases and Insect Pests of the Northern & Central Rocky Mountain Conifers

"Diseases and insects are important features of forests in the northern and central Rocky Mountains. Many are capable of limiting timber production, creating tree hazards in recreation areas, reducing visual quality and affecting wildlife use, fire hazard or watershed quality."To those unfamiliar with conifer diseases and insect pests, identifying the individual agents can be difficult and time consuming. There are more than 1300 diseases and insect pests common on conifer trees in the northern and central Rocky Mountains. Of these, only about 10% account for most of the reported cases of damage. In addition, there are several forms of animal damage and abiotic injuries commonly seen. These roughly 130 common diseases, insects and animal and abiotic damages are our focus."
