Pine beetle coming to a forest near you

Get ready for a change of scenery.

That was the message delivered to the members of the Regional District Board last Thursday as they listened to a presentation by Forest Entomologist Lorraine Maclauchlan.

Maclauchlan has studied the Mountain Pine Beetle problem in BC for many years and was able to give the board some insight as to what the Okanagan- Similkameen might expect to see in terms of infestation in the next few years.
