Meade County Gets Forest Service Approval to Stop the Spread of Mountain Pine Beetles

Meade County Commission chair Alan Aker announced Friday that the county has begun cutting trees infested with the Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB) on Forest Service lands in the county. The agreement, one of very few in the nation, allows the county to cut down infested trees and cut them into short chunks, which kills the beetles and prevents infection of neighboring trees.
