Mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins) is an aggressive bark beetle native to western North America currently expanding its range east. Should it reach northeastern North American pine forests, it is unclear how novel pine hosts might affect traits related to reproduction and development. These data are the result of studies meant to determine how four novel pine hosts might impact mountain pine beetle reproduction and development, relative to two historical hosts.
