British Columbia Forests Attacked by the Pine Beetle, Canada, 2013

The Canadian Forest Service calls it "the largest known insect infestation in North American history." According to a forest officer in Quesnel, British Columbia, observations of the pine beetle have shown that it has been acting more aggressively than ever before: "They are attacking younger [and stronger] trees, and attacking timber in altitudes they have never been before."
