Forest Insect Damage Event

Forest Insect Damage Event Shows areas where forest insect pests have damaged or killed trees by defoliation, foliage mining and wood boring. Tree mortality rarely occurs as the result of one year's infestation, but from the result of several consecutive years of infestation and other contributing factors affecting weakened trees (e.g., fungal invasion). The Government of Ontario tracks forest damage events to help proactively manage the detrimental effects to our forests.   We monitor the threat and spread of invasive forest pest insect species in Ontario. The data is also important to the Forest Management Planning process in calculating timber volume loss within affected areas This product requires the use of GIS software. *[GIS]: geographic information system 2022-08-10 Government of Ontario Economics and IndustryNature and EnvironmentEconomy and BusinessEnvironment and Natural ResourcesEnvironment and energyGovernment information Forest Insect Damage Event - DocumentationDOCX https://data.ontario.ca/dataset/57ea9ca7-ca04-4ad5-923c-dae250dc316f/resource/12274a36-f9e5-44af-83f9-fc51e04d7d8f/download/forest_insect_damage_event_-_documentation.docx Original metadata (https://data.ontario.ca)HTML https://data.ontario.ca/dataset/57ea9ca7-ca04-4ad5-923c-dae250dc316f Original metadata (https://data.ontario.ca/fr)HTML https://data.ontario.ca/fr/dataset/57ea9ca7-ca04-4ad5-923c-dae250dc316f Forest Insect Damage Event - Data DescriptionPDF https://data.ontario.ca/dataset/57ea9ca7-ca04-4ad5-923c-dae250dc316f/resource/a2908cbe-e0ea-42b0-859e-a71129e9fc9a/download/forest_insect_damage_event_-_data_description.pdf Complete File GeodatabaseZIP https://www.gisapplication.lrc.gov.on.ca/fmedatadownload/Packages/fgdb/INSCTDAM.zip Complete ShapefileZIP https://www.gisapplication.lrc.gov.on.ca/fmedatadownload/Packages/INSCTDAM.zip
