Logging truck and burning pine beetle salvage logging. Near Kamloops British Columbia, Canada. Warmer winters are causing the spread of the mountain pine beetle which may be the largest forest insect blight ever seen in North America. It is estimated to have consumed 16 million hecatares of Lodgepole Pine forest in British Columbia alone. Having killed off most of the vulnerable trees in British Columbia, It has now crossed to the east side of the rockies and threatens the boreal forests across the remainder of northern Canada.. At the same time deforestation and the loss of its effect as a carbon sink is exacerbating the climate change which gave rise to the infestation. Nikon F100, fuji Velvia 50, Nikkor 28mm f2 at f5.6 and 1/250
