Mountain Pine Beetle

Patches of red pine trees blanket Colorado's high country and serve as a warning for an an incredible forest fire that will be unlike anything the state of Colorado has ever experienced. You cant blame this one on drought, but instead a tiny little black beetle living just under the bark. According to Colorado State forestry officials, an estimated 750,000 acres of trees have been killed by the Mountain Pine Beetle and this is just the beginning.
