These are white bark pines that are being killed by the mountain pine beetle. Here's a great article about it on Scientific American:  https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/yellowstone-s-iconic-high-mountain-pines-dying-by-beetle-s-mouth/

That darn mountain pine beetle is leaving it's mark on the forest.

We don't have many pines but they'll probably all die from #mountainpinebeetle like these. #mountadams photobomb #thedalles
These red trees in Jasper National Park are not the first signs of autumn, rather they are trees that have died because an epidemic of mountain pine beetle that is killing swathes of the forest.

Besides 18 hour days, frost bite, crappy food, thigh high snow and loosing 30 lb in a month I still catch myself craving to go back.  #husky372xpg #winterfalling #snowshoeing #backcountry #mountainpinebeetle #beetleBBQ
Pretty incredible to see first hand the damage one tiny beetle can do. The warmer winters are favouring the Mountain Pine Beetle and it's really taking a toll here right in Jasper. At Whistler's campground, where we are, I'd say about 1/3 trees are gone already. Pretty crazy.

The picture is a model of a mountain pine beetle found in our Syncrude Environment Gallery! 
An interesting fact about mountain pine beetles: The larvae are protected from cold, winter temperatures by tree bark. They can withstand temperatures -35°C for several days.

Visited Mt. Rushmore today and happened through during a Native American Ritual hoop dance (I even got to participate!!) The dancers were three sisters, Chieftains Daughters of a local Lakota tribe. They explained how the hoop was symbolic to them as a representation of the horizon, where land meets sky. They dance within it to honor the idea that without either of these things we cannot survive. Did you know that the Black Hills National Forest is under attack? Neither did I.... but many parts are being ravaged by the mountain pine beetle and thousands of trees have died. While it, in fact, is native to the area many species that cause such outbreaks are not. The Natives of this land believed in reducing their impact on Nature so that the next four generations could prosper as they had. Many people emulate this idea in modern times with the concept of Leave No Trace. But there is more to that concept than just trash removal and disposal and it is there that most people stop its practice. Often times, infestations occur because an insect traveled in fire wood from one state to another. While you may not be leaving behind any trash.... there are many other ways our presence alone can impact and potentially harm an environment.  Be mindful and in doing so honor the land that provides for us so that our children's children will be able to still call Gaia home. #obligatoryselfie #nativeamerican #mindfulness #hoopdance #travelgram #leavenottrace #mountrushmore #blackelkpeak #nationalparks #americathebeautifulpass #mountainpinebeetle #sacredspaces

The pine forests of western North America have suffered massive losses in the last 20 years, as a warming climate has lead to the mountain pine beetle epidemic that has affected 60 million acres of forest from New Mexico through British Columbia*. I got an up close look at this in the San Juan National Forest, where entire mountainsides are covered with the gray of dead pines. The epidemic has reached its peak in this region, largely because few vulnerable trees remain. After wildfires sweep through these veritable tinder boxes, slowly but surely the ecosystem finds a new equilibrium. The underbrush flourishes with grasses, shrubs, glorious displays of wildflowers, and even a few young pines. This is an example of a ecosystem readjusting from a serious tip in its balance, and is an insight into what is possible in the age of a rapidly changing climate. *"The Bug that's Eating the Woods", Hillary Rosner, National Geographic (@natgeo), April 2015

One thing that stuck me more than anything on my last quick tour is the overwhelming devastation caused throughout the Jasper area by the mountain pine beetle #cyclesoflife #devestation #mountainpinebeetle #naturephotography #canon #bigwhitelenses #conservation #conservationmatters #conservationvisions #landscapephotography #impact #seaofbrown
Snagging some nice 40cm rounds to keep the wood stove happy! 
Pulled this wood out of a block I laid out 2 years ago and the licensee didn't log it all even though the volume and piece size was certainly there. I guess it's mine now.

Give a bunch of teachers axes, chisels, hammers, and a piece of beetle filled pine and you have a party! Today was the unveiling of our new mountain pine beetle unit and BSI teacher training workshop. #fridayfunday .

Not all is green and golden in the Rockies. But in a sad, Land of Mordor kind of way, even these gray pines have a strange beauty.
.
I'm neither a forester nor a phytologist, so I'll leave the species identification to others. .
And an hour of online reading about the mountain beetle infestation in the western forests of North America showed me the complexities of related problems and policies.
.
So. I'll post a couple of pictures (swipe left, to see right) that to me are beautiful and I'll simply say this - for now.
.
We use these lands and forests; we influence those who make land use and forestry policies; we live with the resulting regulations. Let's participate in the process and do our part, whatever we choose that to be. It's about more than just a beetle.

The ever-changing structure of forest health. That red is last years #MountainPineBeetle attack. The grey is the year prior. And the green is next.

Day 1 of the WFGA/CFGA Forest Genetics 2017 Conference: @catsloveemmanuel and I sat through four talks about genetics that we didn't understand but still learned about advancements in tree improvement. We also got some dope socks and a ton of food. We're the youngest attendees and I could not be more excited for the rest of the conference!

Making shelves today for a #diy ladder shelf display. The brackets in the middle keep it stabilized on the ladder and the pieces at the end keep the boards flush.
.
I love the character of the blue stain fungus pine boards and habe made several things out of them. I'm making this all with materials I had sitting around the shop.

A sample of 5 of the 24 mpb trees we fell and debarked today. If you're in the Hinton area come and snag some free peeled denim wood! #mountainpinebeetle #fallandpeel #forestry
Blue Stain Fungus, scientifically known as Grosmannia clavigera, is my all time favourite fungus that is transferred to trees from the mountain pine beetle. Once infected the fungus colonizes the phloem and sapwood; turning it this beautiful shade of blue 💙 Fun fact: I keep a piece in my car for good luck 😉 #bluestain #bluestainfungus #fungus #fungi #nature #blue #tree #naturephotography #nikonphotography #thunderbay #NWO #sleepinggiant #sleepinggiantprovincialpark #mountainpinebeetle #northwesternontario #thunderbayphotographer #photooftheday #canada

One of the perks of designing the image for the burning beetle festival is that you get beetle swag! This was a fun collaborative project with my good friend @dakotagoat 💗 I do the basic design and he churches it up! #teamwork

I have to admit I was a little bit apprehensive about heading back to beetle work after having only been home for three weeks, but sussing out our package and looking at a 51 tree plot card with a 28dbh has got me stoked. My saw is hungry and my body is craving movement! #woodslife #forestry #mountainpinebeetle #longlivehusqvarna
