This environmental statement described a proposal by the State of Maine to apply insecticides to 3.5 million acres of spruce fir forest in 1979 to suppress an outbreak of the eastern spruce budworm. Financial assistance from the Federal Government has been requested. No action, salvage cutting, pre-salvage cutting, accelerated logging, silvicultural treatments, and a combination of these were considered as alternatives to the proposed action.
