''Hylobius abietis'' or the large pine weevilis a beetle belonging from Curculionidae. This species is regarded as the most important pest of conifer seedlings planted after clear felling throughout Europe especially in countries which use this way of forest management. The weevils cause damage by eating the bark of seedlings thus preventing its further growth, or even killing them.
