Insects and Diseases

Monitoring Program


The Insect and Disease Monitoring Program began in the spring of 2005. All trees removed due to insects and diseases are documented and used to track and monitor insect and disease movements. 

Spring traps set for Southern Pine Beetles placed throughout The Woodlands monitor beetle populations, helping us estimate the potential for insect outbreaks and prepare for them. Trees that are believed to have insects or disease are removed as soon as possible, and the ailment is identified.
