CFS Forest Pest Related National Projects 2008/09


Federal role in forest sector

Develop science and technology to enhance forestry policy and practices.

Support Canada’s international trade interests in the forest products industry.

Represent Canada’s bilateral and multilateral discussions and negotiations on forest-related issues of global significance.

Federal Role in Forest Sector


Canadian forest service forest health activities

  • HQ: Ottawa

  • 5 Research Centres:

    • Pacific

    • Northern

    • Great Lakes

    • Laurentian

    • Atlantic

Reduction in Barriers to Trade

The movement of alien invasive species has serious ecological and economic effects around the world

The Canadian forest sector is affected both in damage to the forest and in impacts to trade.

The CFS works closely with the CFIA, international collaborators and provinces to address this issue

Economic Analysis

Alien species surveillance and establishment analysis

Testing pheromone lures for bark beetles

Barcoding invasive and native pests

Analysis of long-established IAS

Reduction in Barriers to Trade


Canadian forest service forest health activities

Science support to development of international phytosanitary measures (CFS/IEPB,CFIA, DFAIT, IPPC, NAPPO)

Wood Packing treatment options

Sudden Oak Death Risk Analysis

Analysis of fungi in exported green lumber

Insect and fungal collections

Collections and taxonomy

Reduction in Barriers to Trade

Integrated Pest Management

  • Biocontrol of forest weeds

  • Armillaria

    • Growth impacts, modeling

    • Control - stumping

  • Phellinus/Laminated Root Rot research

    • Douglas-fir (DF) resistance

    • Genomics and proteomics

    • Occurrence and incidence in BC's southern interior

    • Management strategies for LRR


Canadian forest service forest health activities

Integrated Pest Management

  • Defoliators

    • Bio-control: Spruce Budworm, Western Hemlock Looper, Doug-fir Tussock Moth, Hemlock Sawfly, Winter Moth

    • Spruce budworm population ecology and biology

  • Dwarf Mistletoe biocontrol

  • White Pine Weevil

    • Selection of resistant trees


Canadian forest service forest health activities

Forest Invasive Species

  • Biocontrol and fungicides for management of Sudden Oak Death

  • Stem Rusts

    • White Pine Blister Rust Research

  • Septoria canker of hybrid poplar


  • Canadian forest service forest health activities

    Mountain Pine Beetle

    Bark Beetles

    • Modelling the risk of eastern spread of MPB: susceptibility and host connectivity

    • Spatial modelling of beetle impact under management and climate scenarios

    • Population dynamics of endemic populations

    • Landscape level spread model for MPB

    • Incorporation of genomics information into MPB statistical spread models (Genome BC announcement)

    • Beetle fungal tree interactions

      east of Rockies


    Canadian forest service forest health activities

    Mountain Pine Beetle

    Bark Beetles

    • Impacts of interacting below- and above- ground herbivores on gap dynamics

    • Reproduction of MPB in alternate hosts (spruce)

    • Measuring ecosystem response to beetle outbreaks

      • Regeneration and growth releases.

      • Measuring interactions between beetle and fire

      • Modeling growth and yield in a beetle environment


    Mountain pine beetle remote sensing

    Estimate changes in MPB population over time

    Assess efficacy of mitigation efforts

    Track population dynamics, including Green:Red ratios (green attack is retrospectively mapped using time series of red attack)

    Make wide-area estimates from sampled information

    Estimate and adjust red attack damage estimates

    Mountain Pine Beetleremote sensing


    Canadian forest service forest health activities

    Spruce Beetle, Western Spruce Budworm Risk in a Changing Climate

    Implemented SB voltinism and WSBW development models in BioSIM for CC forecasting

    Developing statistical outbreak risk models including CC

    Developing collaborations with USFS Western Threat Centre, Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium
