Risk assessment of the threat of mountain pine beetle to Canada’s boreal and eastern pine forests : prepared for the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers, Forest Pest Working Group / edited by K.P. Bleiker,...: Fo79-14/2019E-PDF

"Since 2000, mountain pine beetle (MPB) has spread relatively rapidly east across the Rocky Mountains through northeastern British Columbia, across much of Alberta, and northward towards Yukon and the Northwest Territories. The risk of father northward spread is low in the near future due to poor climatic suitability and the subsiding of large population in northern British Columbia. However, an area of highly susceptible pine in southeastern Yukon is expected to be at risk by 2050 due to the anticipated effects of climate change"--Executive Summary, page 7.
