The Pine Beetle Scourge Is Coming

I read an article this morning from the Casper-Star Tribune about how trees that are dying from beetle infestation in the Medicine Bow Mountains are losing the ability to hold snowpack in the mountains about 2 years after they die…this is the desertification of the mountains happening as I type this post…another thing that occurs to me as I type this is that if things have gone that far in the Medicine Bow Mountains that level of infestation will soon be in the Bozeman, Montana area (probably in the next five years) soon.Who else is noticing this phenomina and thinking about what this means to us????
