Due to shallow root systems rotting away, Beetle-killed trees are beginning to fall. This creates a risk to outdoor lovers and home owners who are around trees affected by pine beetles. Of those trees killed by the pine beetles, amoung 80 percent in Colorado will fall within the decade. The CSFS wants people to be wary when around these trees in high-winds. They also recommend not traveling on roads through beetle-killed forests or to pack an axe or saw to clear fallen trees. For more information, please go to http://www.CSFS.ColoState.edu.
