Steele, Robert; Williams, Ralph E.; Weatherby, Julie C.; Reinhardt, Elizabeth D.; Hoffman, James T.; Thier, R. W. 1996. Stand hazard rating for central Idaho forests. Gen. Tech. Rep. INT-GTR-332. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, lntermountain Research Station. 29 p.

Growing concern over sustainability of central Idaho forests has created a need to assess the health of forest stands on a relative basis. A stand hazard rating was developed as a composite of 11 individual ratings to compare the health hazards of different stands. The composite rating includes Douglas-fir beetle, mountain pine beetle, western pine beetle, spruce beetle, Douglas-fir tussock moth, western spruce budworm, dwarf mistletoes, annosus root disease, Swhweinitzii root and butt rot, and wildfire. The interacting effects of these agents were also considered.

Keywords: insects, bark beetles, fungi, mistletoes, root rots, forest diseases, fire danger, forest fires, forest pests
