The objectives of this study are to:
- (i) Provide the logging manager, who is faced with a severe spruce budworm infestation, with a picture of the effect this will have on the forest and how this effect will change with time.
- (ii) Alert the manager to the effect this will have on the logging plan, productivity and cost of manual and mechanized harvesting.
- (iii) Summarize the identified cost-affected areas to provide a check list as an aid to companies or government agencies to determine the total cost penalty for salvaging specific bud- worm-affected timber stands.
