Beetle Project

“This first-of-its-kind project gives our national forest additional tools to get ahead of the pine beetle on a larger scale and could serve as a blueprint for other western states to follow.” – U.S. Representative Kristi Noem (S.D.), discussing the Black Hills National Forest’s Mountain Pine Beetle Response Project that will thin 248,000 acres of the forest in northeastern Wyoming and western South Dakota to get ahead of the mountain pine beetle.
