Giant Pine Scale Outbreak Giant pine scale, an insect pest that feeds on the sap of pine, fir and spruce trees, was recently found in metropolitan Melbourne.
The Department of Economic Development (DED) is conducting a program to control this pest and protect Australia’s $1 billion softwood plantation industry.
In Melbourne, more than 500 trees infested with giant pine scale have been found, on both private and public land.
Two restricted areas have been established around the sites where the pest has been detected.
Please see the attached documents for further information about the infestation, locations and treatments being conducted.
