The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests are working to treat areas that are affected by the spruce beetle epidemic and fir engraver beetle. The forests in the Gunnison area are most actively affected by spruce beetle that has moved in looking for more food/habitat from areas of the south and southeast. The Grand Mesa also has an active epidemic of spruce beetle infestation and likewise, work is occurring and planned to occur there on affected stands. In the areas surrounding Ouray, the fir engraver beetle is affecting stands on both private and National Forest System lands and the Forest Service is working with landowners and the community to determine what areas may be treatable.More
