Abstract/Summary
Introduction/General
The forest pests of the North Western Himalayas have not yet received adequate attention of the Entomologists of the Indo-Pakistan Sub-continent. Preliminary observations were however made by Stabbing (1911-14) on some pests of the conifers. Since then attention has mainly been confined either to the insects of the plains or to those of adjoining hills. The broad-leaved-deciduous trees of this part of the Himalayas excepting the Oaks have almost been completely neglected. The writer has made a survey of such pests from Rawalpindi (at the foot of this range) up to Muzaffarabad and from Abbottabad upto Murree in the Hazara districts of the N.W.F.P.
