Maine’s forests perhaps the right time to die
- Harris, Michael
Eight million acres of fir-spruce forests are the heart of Maine's economy, so it made sense to spray when these forests were threatened by a spruce budwrom infestation in 1964. Now, 15 years and more than $40 million later, experts are suggesting that chemicals alone cannot win the war against this tiny insect, and may in fact prolong it. A strategic withdrawal may be the only way to win.
