Pine Beetle Problem Waning, But May Be Moving To Lower Elevations

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – The U.S. Forest Service plans to spray nearly 8,000 trees in Northern Colorado to protect them from pine beetles.

The pine beetle epidemic has killed thousands of trees across the state, but now the problem is waning.

The Forest Service is now concerned that the pine beetles are moving to lower elevations because they’ve run out of food at higher elevations.

The spraying starts once the snow melts.
