It should now be public knowledge - there's been a press release - the
eight-toothed spruce bark beetle is here!


Although confined to spruce (?), if you thought ash dieback caused concern
(& this one isn't as bad as Xylella) it may give those who have invested
their cash in sitka spruce (and to whom diversification means different
provenances of ..sitka spruce), a few sleepless nights. Well continuous
sleeplessness I would think.




The impact on the UK's spruce forests could be devastating if this pest were
to become established in this country.
