Bark Beetle on the Colville National Forest

The Mountain Pine Beetle is at epidemic levels throughout the western United States and in parts of Canada.  While we have not seen the extreme  levels of infestation here in eastern Washington, concern about the epidemic is growing and the Forest Service has had requests for information on the insect’s impact here on the Colville National Forest.   We feel that the documents listed should help answer most questions at both a local scale and a regional scale.
