    Description

    Over the last 15 years, spruce bark beetles have killed huge numbers of spruce trees, the dominant conifer across south-central Alaska. From 80 to 90 percent of the trees are dead in large areas on the Kenai Peninsula. The consequences of the spruce bark beetle outbreak will continue for years.
