Abstract

Early attempts at green pruning hoop pine, Araucaria cunninghamii, in the Mary Valley plantations were followed by attacks of the pine bark weevil, Aesiotes notabilis Pasc. In addition to hoop pine, other native species of Araucaria, species of Agathis and several exotic conifers of the genus Pinus are hosts. Attacks by Aesiotes are initiated in open wounds shortly after they are produced. Such wounds are rare on trees in the natural rain forest, where the insect is of little economic importance.
