A Sad View

IMG_4235A few weeks ago BigD determined that Pine Wilt had struck our little “Pine Corner,” as we lovingly referred to it.   There’s nothing you can do to kill the bugs – you just have to cut down the infected trees and burn them.  So BigD got to work and started cutting trees down.

You can see where the beetles went into the trees.  It’s amazing how evenly spaced and perfectly linear their entrance holes are.

 

 

 

 

If my count is correct, nine nice size pine trees came down and were burned.  We’re very hopeful the remaining trees (which are supposedly more resistant) don’t become infected.
