The U. S. Forest Service recently confirmed that our pinon trees are under attack again from bark beetles. Although this time is not expected to be as severe as it was several years ago, junipers are also being affected. In light of this, we strongly encourage property owners to remove dead trees. For additional information on this issue, please consult the TRA published booklet “Methods for the Prevention and Treatment of Bark Beetles” which is available in the resources section: https://tanoroad.org/local-resources/tra-booklets
If you have any information to share about the beetles, please do so on the TRA Forum.
