I live in a bug quarantine area and am supposed to keep a signed checklist of all the items I may move that they have been inspected for these bugs or their eggs.

The spotted lantern butterfly. Came from Berks County, PA. The DCNR dithered and now they are on the move and all over the state. Hard to control. Thank our Gov. Wolf.

I remember the gypsy moth plague and recently stink bugs. I have not seen gypsy moth problems in years and stink bugs are practically gone. Nature eventually balances itself from these problems.

Gypsy moths are rank amateurs compared to pine beetles. Several areas where I hike have verbenone patches stapled to the ponderosa pines. I don't know how effective they will be. Obviously running around with a stapler and a pack full of patches is much more labor intensive than aerial spraying.

Spraying has its issues too.

With whatever your are comfortable disclosing, where do you hail from? Ponderosa pines are my favorite pine, then Jeffery, then Sugar.
Have you smelled the bark of a Ponderosa lately? Butterscotch or Vanilla?

Western Montana. The prominent species are p. pine and Douglas fir, with some stands of larch and lodgepole. Some creeks have cedars, my favorite, along them and the rivers in the valleys are lined with cottonwood. There are a few stands of aspen, and a juniper or two. At higher elevations you get Englemann spruce subalpine fir, and whitebark pine.
Western red and white pines are a little further west, along the Idaho divide. It's a little wetter over that way.
The state tree is the Ponderosa pine.

Sometimes I miss the diversity of hardwoods you find back east. It's a semi-arid climate so maples, chestnuts, and so forth only exist where they've been planted. The lower elevations where they would exist in a wetter place are short grass prairie.

Smells like vanilla to me. When I think of butterscotch the image of those yellow candies wrapped in cellophane comes up and I don't remember them smelling like much.
