Article
Ponderosa pine forests of the Southwest are home to the native bark beetle. However, human influence, denser forests, and increased temperatures and drought events have led to recent bark beetle outbreaks that threaten the health of ponderosa stands.

Restoration treatments can be used to help restore the balance needed in ponderosa pine ecosystems.
