Description

more
Represents a mapped event where forest insect pests have damaged trees by defoliation, foliage mining and wood boring, or contributed to tree mortality. Only the outer perimeter of the damage events are generally mapped e.g. there is no distinction between smaller areas within that were unaffected. In addition to infestations, forest mortality areas caused by these insect pests are mapped as separate events. This layer is maintained by the Forest Health and Silviculture Section of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (OMNR) under the auspices of the Forest Health Program - a cooperative venture between the OMNR and Natural Resources Canada (NRCAN). Legislated or Legal Authority for Collection: Forest information Manual (FIM) deliverable to Forest Industry on an annual basis. Additional Time Period Information: Insect pest damage events are collected annually and stored as such. (by year). In NRVIS, the documented damage events are appended to this data class on an annual basis. In other words, this Data Class accommodates several years worth of forest insect damage events, with updates added on an annual basis. Data is collected on an on-going basis therefore the time period 'end date' may be more recent than indicated above. Additional Metadata Location: Ontario's Forest Health Program websit.  This is a generalized feature layer.
