Abstract: Dendroctonus ponderosae, mountain pine beetle infestation in BC has become a great issue over the years. Remote sensing is used to monitor mountain pine beetle impact so that damage can be mitigated, prevented, and controlled. Aerial overview survey, aerial photography and different satellite applications are compared. Future advancement in remote sensing applications can save our Pinus contorta (lodgepole pine) forests in BC.
