San Diego River Shot Hole Borer Study

December 4, 2023

Data presented are results of vegetation sampling conducted in 2019-20 and 2023 in 24 survey plots to document the status of infestation by shot hole borers (Euwallacea sp.) on the riparian vegetation at the San Diego River. This dataset presents location, percent cover of different vegetation types, and number of seedlings for each survey plot. In addition, for each tree and sapling in each plot we present species, size, tree status (live, resprouting, recently dead from shot hole borer, or dead from another cause or unknown cause), infestation status (infested by shot hole borer, not infested by shot hole borer, or infestation not confirmed as shot hole borer), and crown condition. For every tree we also present location, tree tag number, and density of shot hole borer entrance holes.
