SD County Says It's Making Headway In Beetle Fight

SD County Says It's Making Headway In Beetle Fight
SPEARFISH, SD -

Officials in one South Dakota county say they're gaining ground on the pine beetle battle in the Black Hills.

About 34,000 trees are marked to be cut this season in Lawrence County as officials continue a fight that first began in the spring of 2012, when 42,000 trees were cut.

About 48,000 trees were cut in the fall of 2012.

Lawrence County Invasive Species Director Dave Heck says that the treatment methods are working.

This is the first year the beetle battle will be funded by the state, rather than Lawrence County and private donations. The county employs the markers and private contractors provide the cutting services.
