Pine Beetles have again been detected in Pine Trees in our area. Please be alert to the presence of these potentially harmful beetles as the removal of trees sometimes is a best practice control. We do not want to see an infestation of the pest.
A link to information found on the SC Forestry Commission website provides information on the different types of pine beetles: http://www.state.sc.us/forest/idbeetles.pdf
