Southern Pine Beetle

The southern pine beetle (SPB), Dendroctonus frontalis, is considered the most destructive native forest pest in the Southern U.S., the SPB can occasionally reach outbreak levels in pine forests in Virginia. It generally attacks trees that are already stressed but can overcome healthy trees in high populations. The StoryMap in our library below shares more about SPB and the problems it can cause.
