Mountain Pine Beetle and Wildfire Risk

The mountain pine beetle has killed 1.5 million acres of lodgepole pine in Colorado alone since 1996, and in 2007 the beetles killed an estimated 3.9 million acres of lodgepole pine across the Rocky Mountain region. The extent of beetle kill has raised concerns that the risk of catastrophic fires is spreading along with the outbreak. A series of studies is starting to shed light on how this infestation will play out in terms of wildfire risk over the next decades.
