Description: Southern pine beetles attacked green, uninfested downed trees and logs, as well as nearby standing trees. Beetles infesting horizontal trees and decked logs reproduced sufficiently to indicate that in some circumstances freshly cut, green trees may provide a utilizable resource for beetle populations.
Keywords: Dendroctonus frontalis, dispersal, Ips calligraphus, southern pine beetle
