Bark beetle exhibit at the Pulp Mill Attic

In the wood pulp mill during the 2018 season, Kistefos-Museet has developed a small temporary exhibition about the war on European Spruce bark beetle in Norway during the 1970s.

The exhibition has a particular focus on A/S Kistefos Træsliberi and the company's fight against bark beetles in the Kistefos forests. There is also a section dedicated to the risk of outbreaks today, as well as research and monitoring to meet new challenges in a future warmer climate. This latter section is made in collaboration with Nibio. Nibio has also lent Kistefos-Museet all the items in the exhibition. NRK has contributed wirh a news clip from its archive, which shows the fight against bark beetles in 1973.
