Establishment of PSP network to monitor stand dynamics and establish yield curves for stands killed by MPB

As a result of significant in-flights of mountain pine beetles coming from British Columbia in 2006 and 2009, as well as subsequent local production, there are widely distributed pine dominated stands throughout Alberta that have been significantly affected by MPB-caused mortality.
