Baldy deemed safe from beetles
Forest Service says population has collapsed

by KATHERINE WUTZ

Bald Mountain won't be buzzed by beetle-fighting helicopters this summer, as Forest Service officials report that the Douglas fir bark beetle population has collapsed, meaning Baldy's trees are now out of extreme danger
I saw that article. Remember those pics from summer before last that I posted? Well, hiking around up there you could see the little pieces of blotter paper laying around everywhere. There must have been hundreds of thousands of them like a hippie's dream come true.
