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.

Spray card used in connection with the control of the spruce budworm. The chemically treated card is placed within the spray blocks, four chains apart, prior to spraying the area, to measure spray deposition when the area is sprayed. When spray droplets fall on a car, a chemical change takes place, thereby revealing the amount of spray reaching the area. This string is used as a guide to the card for ease in finding and picking up the card for checking after the area is sprayed. The paper clip...
