Pine beetle is destroying forests in western canada. There was a big freeze this year, which probably killed off a high percentage of them, but
they've been cutting trees down that are infected at a rampant rate, just to get a buck out of them.
Also, it doesn'thelp that most, like probably 90% even, of replanted forests are done so with pine, making it a feast for these little bugs.Pine
A couple years ago, i was marking out cut blocks for a company, and when you get deep in to the forest and you get a view, one is awed by the
destruction these things bring.
