1. Establish new monitoring plots to determine hemlock mistletoe spread from residual, mistletoe-infected trees and infection of nearby regenerating trees in the Kingcome Timber Supply Area, and possibly other areas, depending on accessibility and available transportation;
2. Determine feasibility of aerial sketch mapping (or alternative methods) of hemlock dwarf mistletoe infestations in the LLEMS test or calibration area (Kingcome Timber Supply Area), depending accessibility and available transportation;
3. Re-measure monitoring plots established in 2005 near Ucluelet and in the Kingcome Timber Supply Area; and
4. Monitor hemlock dwarf mistletoe seed dispersal from residual, mistletoe-infected trees near Ucluelet that were studied in 2005 and 2006.
