Abstract: This study aims to identify factors influencing the attack level by the whitespotted sawyer (Monochamus scutellatus scutellatus) after windthrow in uneven-aged boreal forests, and the period of time during which affected trees remain susceptible to attacks. Measures were taken in a natural windthrow on the Côte-Nord and in a small experimental windthrow generated at the Forêt Montmorency. Studied tree species are black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP) and balsam fir (Abies balsamea (L.) P. Mill.). The collected data indicate that windthrow severity and the number of years since tree death significantly affect the number of entry holes of the whitespotted sawyer larvae. In addition, tree species and status after windthrow influence their attractiveness to the whitespotted sawyer. These results could help forest managers to improve salvage logging plans after windthrow in boreal forest.
