Pine beetles killing a tree species found across Canada

TheStar: Pine beetles killing a tree species found across Canada.

I came across this article and thought that I would share it with you. It would seem that the Mountain Pine Beetle has begun to attact Jack Pines. While the infestation is located in Alberta at present, Jack Pines are located across Canada, and are the dominant pine species in our Boreal forests. That means that this threat could possibly spread across the country. Not a good state of affairs. I will be watching the news feeds on this story closely.
