I enjoy any opportunity to spend time in an agricultural setting – and this was no exception.
I am in the process of sending out a new promo piece. This photograph is the dominant picture, and I want to share a bit of the story behind the picture.
Bob Cain, Forest Entomologist with the USFS, is standing in a section of forest about 40 miles west of Denver, Colorado, that was hit particularly hard by the mountain pine beetle. The mountain pine beetle, a species of bark beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae, is native to the forests here in the western United States.
