Event Description

The Native Invasive Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB) outbreak in Western Canada seriously threatens pine forests in Alberta and Saskatchewan and indeed across Canada. The outbreak that killed almost 50% of BC's pine growing stock breached the Rockies in two long distance dispersal events in 2006 and 2009, and is spreading across Alberta. The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an exotic wood boring insect from eastern Asia, has killed ash trees throughout the eastern half of North America. EAB was found in Winnipeg in December 2017 and threatens urban and park ash forests in Saskatchewan and western North America. Rory McIntosh has been involved in forest entomology since 1978 and has worked in entomology research across Canada. He studied at the University of New Brunswick and completed post-doctoral research at Simon Fraser University. Currently, Rory is the Provincial Forest Entomologist and Pathologist in Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment. Based in Prince Albert, he leads the provincial insect and disease program, and is currently an adjunct professor in the School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) at the University of Saskatchewan. Everyone welcome!
