Removal of beetle-infested wood
In general, the problem starts with a few "weak" trees that are infested by pests. Over time, the infestation spreads and the damage grows. For this reason, selected trees should be removed from the forest as quickly as possible.
After felling and transporting them to the collection point, the trees are stripped and the bark is discarded or burned. Nowadays, this process is still carried out by hand in many places. Mulching is an attractive alternative, which averts the risk of the infestation spreading quickly.
