2019 Bark Beetle Forecast

Post by rightstar76 » Mon May 27, 2019 11:05 pm

You can see where the trees in the Sierra Nevada are most likely to die this year from bark beetle. Not looking good. Worse area seems to be Hockett Lakes on the Hockett Plateau south through North Fork of the Middle Fork Tule River to Mountain Home State Forest. Most of Moses Mountain is included. Area around Quaking Aspen as well.

Just scroll down to the 2019 forecast.
Cells with similar histories of bark beetle activity and precipitation were then grouped together into ten risk (color) groups. These risk groups (R) forecast a range of the likely number of trees expected to die from bark beetles by the end of summer 2019.
