This report contains an overview of the present mountain pine beetle infestation in lodgepole pine stands on Federal, State, and private lands on the Plains Ranger District. Particular emphasis is placed on the potential for beetle mortality in the Thompson River drainage where recent ground surveys show more than 21 trees per acre were killed in 1978. Management alternatives which can lessen the severity, or reduce the possibilities, of future infestations are discussed.
