When conifers have been grown for Christmas trees in lowland arable farmland areas under an intensive short-rotation system, it has sometimes been found difficult to produce good quality foliage without embarking on some kind of insect control. Thirty-one species of aphids, moths, sawflies, beetles and mites are of concern to growers of Christmas trees in Europe. Many illustrations of pests, their life cycle, and the damage they cause support concise descriptions in the text. Advice on minimising damage and controlling insect populations is given. This publication is still available in hard copy.
