Learn more about this insect and it's impact on community and rural forests.




Mountain pine beetle, Douglas-fir beetle, and spruce beetle are the major forest agents-of-change in Wyoming's forests. Since the early 1990s, these three native bark beetles have caused tree mortality over an estimated three-and-a-half million acres of federal, state, and private forests in Wyoming.

We provide site-specific forest management advice to private forest landowners, municipalities, and local government land managers.  Aerial reconnaissance and ground surveys play a pivotal role by identifying agents-of-change as well as their effects on forest cover types.
