SD Workshops Held To Protect Trees From Beetles

SD Workshops Held To Protect Trees From Beetles

The South Dakota Department of Agriculture will co-host three workshops to help landowners protect trees from the mountain pine beetle.

The events will cover the benefits and methods of treating trees with an insecticide.

Brian Garbisch is a forest health program specialist for the state. He says it can cost $1,000 to remove a tree damaged by infestation. Preventative treatments cost around $30 a year.

Healthy trees can often expel the pests. But if a tree is overwhelmed, the beetles can bore into it clogging and feeding on its tissue.

The first workshop will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks Outdoor Campus West in Rapid City. The other events will be held April 23 in Spearfish and April 24 near Custer.
