- Maine Cooperative Spruce Budworm Suppression Project
This document summarized procedures employed by Maine Forest Service (MFS) in planning spray application in suppression projects, and in controlling and calibrating aircraft to assure correct application of spray to those blocks. Its purpose is to serve as a management guide to project planners and to inform interested parties of procedures employed.
These topics are treated together because they are practically speaking inseparable in the planning process. Procedures employed are based on technical information, past experience, and judgment.
This document presupposes a foliage protection strategy. Certain planing guidelines would have to be changed if population control were the objective.
