    The characteristics of spruce individuals, which survived a massive bark beetle outbreak, were compared with the characteristics of neighbouring attacked trees in Sumava National Park (Czech Republic). Selected parameters related to crown geometry, stand conditions and distances between trees were measured or estimated. Significant differences were found between the surviving trees and the neighbouring trees attacked by I. typographus. Trees with a higher level of stem shading (longer crown length) tended to survive. Spruce trees with more progressive crown structure transformation (primary structure defoliation) were significantly more frequently attacked by spruce bark beetle. These results show that the attack of trees by bark beetle can be predicted to a certain degree, which can be used in management of endangered spruce forests.
