Dead trees cause many dangers

At Rockin’s River Resort north of Prince George, British Columbia, Horst Schulz is experiencing a consequence not often associated with the mountain pine beetle epidemic.

“The flooding has gotten tremendous now that all the pine are dead,” Schulz said. “I had to take a boat to the house for about a week this year.”

Schulz said high water forced him to push his campground’s opening date back an entire month this year, from May 15 to June 15.
