SOPFIM’s new mandate is to spary BTK biological insecticide on 170 ha in private forest with helicoters. Those interventions are targeted for mature susceptible managed forests.
Several territories are likely to be affected by TBE in Bas-Saint-Laurent. SOPFIM has specific selection criteria to protect the most endangered private forests.
Several benefits come from our treatment against spruce budworm. Those benefits are environmental and economic.
