PIERRE, SD -
South Dakota is getting $3 million in federal grants to help in the battle against the mountain pine
The U.S. Forest Service and Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced the grants on Tuesday. Daugaard says they complement a recent commitment of $1 million annually in state funds over the next three years for pine beetle control.
Daugaard and Rocky Mountain Regional Forester Jerome Thomas say the federal grants will help address the health and safety threats that result from dead and dying beetle-infested trees.
