Sadly, once these horrors have taken up residence, the battle is usually lost. This has been shown over and over again in the substantial loss of so many of these beautiful and proud-standing trees here in Colorado in recent years.
However, all is not lost. These creatures are more prone to attack trees under stress. This can be caused by a variety of factors, such as improper trimming or topping, damaged roots, or the effects of drought or disease. Older trees, on their last legs, can be attacked, and this can even lead the mountain pine beetles towards young and healthy specimens nearby. Therefore, keeping your trees as healthy as possible is an important action to take.
