Last year, drew Sweden a record number of forest fires on which approximately 2.1 million cubic metres of smoke went up. But the letterzetters ( Ips typographus ) were furious rampage and devoured nearly twice as much surface area to forests.
The plague is expected to only get worse, because the typesetter is very well thriving in the current warmer and drier summers. The Swedish bosagentschap treasure, in the worst scenario, that this year is 12.5 million cubic meters of forest would be lost. That is more than 15 percent of the annual logging operations. The agency is in the best case of a status quo: 3 to 4 million cubic metres of forest road.
