Weldwood desired to determine the extent of damage that is currently caused by white pine weevil on TFL5 and determine the potential for future weevil damage to existing stands. This was to be accomplished through a spatial analysis, applying a localized weevil hazard rating matrix developed through the project surveying, to the current spatial forest cover inventory. As part of this process, Weldwood also requested that methods to minimize damage to existing susceptible spruce stands, and methods of minimizing white pine weevil damage to future plantations, be proposed.
