BARK BEETLE INFESTATION
THE BARK BEETLE: This little critter is the most destructive insect in the coniferous forest of the West and Southwest. This document will teach you and your family how to recognize it and what you can do to protect your trees that have not been attacked. Sadly, there is nothing you can do for the ones that have already been attacked. Very important: Do not save the wood from an infested tree or pole for use as firewood!
CALAVERAS COUNTY ADDED TO THE PRIORITY FOR DEAD TREE REMOVAL
Calaveras County on Monday was one of several counties added to the priority list for Gov. Jerry Brown’s Tree Mortality Task Force. See here.
