Yep - invasive milfoil! Nasty little weed that takes over and closes out the sunlight getting into the lake depths - with predictable results. Again, and now more than ever, we need to be good stewards of this land and educate ourselves every step of the way. I want my grandchildren, and their children, and all who follow, to enjoy all that I have enjoyed - and not just in photo albums, zoos, and aquariums!

Yes, the pine bark beetle has been ruining pines all over the west. Down near Santa Fe, you can search far and wide to try to find a living Pinon pine tree. The damned things are also starting to infest the Ponderosa pines down closer to Taos. Not up here yet, but I suspect it's only a matter of time.

See the link below for info on the EAB.

Being an Internationally Certified Arborist, I have attended training to identify, report and treat possible infestations in urban forests. Nasty little buggers! Trying to avoid a repeat of Dutch Elm Disease, Sudden Oak Death and Oak Wilt. There are treatments, but very hard to treat an entire forest effectively, as we learned w/ Dutch Elm. The best solution/prevention is to diversify tree species throughout our urban forests (neighborhoods).

Considering the devastation caused by the Mountain Pine Beetle here in British Columbia, leaving firewood at home makes sense.
