Death of a Forest

Smrt lesa

The forests of North America are undergoing huge changes. With warmer temperatures during the winters, the pine beetles are surviving in astounding numbers and are killing the forests of the western US and Canada. To date millions of acres of forests and billions of trees are dead and there is no end in sight. By 2013, 80% of the North American forests could be gone. Nothing, except very cold winters will stop the beetles.
