Southern Pine Beetle Suppression

By March 1, 2024No Comments

In August 2023, The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) announced a response plan for the suppression of an outbreak of the southern pine beetle (Dendroctonus frontalis; SPB) at Manuel F. Correllus State Forest in West Tisbury, MA. The Cape Cod Firewood team are Massachusetts licensed timber harvesters and we have performed much of the southern pine beetle suppression work on Martha’s Vineyard.

We are concerned that the infestation will spread to the mainland and our team is prepared and available to stop the spread of these beetles.
