This report summarizes progress in Maine Forest Service spruce budworm programs from summer 1976 to summer 1977. It is prepared in response to a need for a condensed source of information on budworm programs and to initiate a process of formal evaluation of program success. This report includes the financial report to the legislature required by a 1977 amendment to the 1976 Budworm Suppression Act.
A full report on the 1977 spray project and the projected infestation situation for 1978 is in preparation. A detailed review of environmental issues is provided in the U.S. Forest Service Final Environmental Statement on the project.
