    I drove through the Black Hills in August 2012 and was bummed to see such extensive mpb in the Hills. I thought, "is no one doing anything about this"? My compliments to the South Dakota foresters and agencies for jumping on this problem. As an avid outdoor recreationist and forester in Colorado, I can tell you what "lack of serious forest management" has done to our state. It's absolutely outrageous. We would rather spend our money putting forest fires out than managing for outbreaks like the mt pine beetle.
