USDA Forest Service, Forest Health Protection

This photo collection spans over 115 years of federal and state forest entomology, forest pathology, aerial forest insect and disease detection surveys, forest tree genetics, and invasive species management in the Pacific Northwest. While primarily focused on research, activities, and personnel in Oregon and Washington, many photos from other areas are also included. Spanning 1902-2018, the images form an extremely loose visual program history.

Bark beetle infested tree felled with blasting powder. Craggy Mountain Bark Beetle Control Project. California. Most of the men hired on this project were local ranchers and miners. These men knew how to use blasting powder and figured that it was easier to shoot down infested trees than to saw them down. Tom Lane, a member of the crew, had a box camera and wanted a picture just as the blast exploded. He lashed his camera to a stake, 15 feet fom the tree, tied a string around the tree at the...

1922. A spotter at work marking and listing a beetle infested tree. All insect-killed trees were examined by spotters; those trees containing live broods of bark beetles were numbered and marked to be treated by the treating crews which followed this worker. A record of the brood in each tree was made by the spotter on a special printed card and tacked to the tree. The card is shown tacked to the tree in the strip. The spotter is shown taking a "Spotter's Record" sheet which was filed...
