Swenk, M.H. (1927) The pine tipmoth in the Nebraska National Forest (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 40)
On May 8, 1911, Mr. Smith Riley, the District Forester, with headquarters at Denver, in a letter to Acting Supervisor Pierce at Halsey, requested that the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station take up energetically the investigation of the pine tipmoth in the Nebraska National Forest. This request being presented to the Department by Mr. Pierce later in the month resulted in the presentation of the problem to the Experiment Station Council as a proposed Station project. The project was approved on May 31, 1911, and the expenses of the investigations of 1911 and 1912 that are reported upon in this bulletin were borne by the Adams Fund of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station.
