Lorraine is responsible for forest health monitoring, training, implementing operational control programs (bark beetles and defoliators) and Forest Health research in the Thompson Okanagan Region and south area. Her entomology research and operational work supports clients in developing management strategies for, and reducing impacts from insect outbreaks.

Current research projects

  • Long-term effects of insects in high elevation forests 
  • Long-term impacts of pests in regenerating lodgepole pine
  • Impact and management of insects in Interior Douglas-fir forests
