The pine trees in our province have been under attack by the Pine Beetle.
I was almost afraid to go for a walk today in Ellison Provincial Park, which is a popular camping spot about 15 minutes away and my favorite place to go. Last fall, they began removing beetle kill trees so I worried it would no longer be a forest and would now be a treeless wasteland.
I have a few favorite Ponderosa Pines that I always like to visit as they have the most amazing bark. It fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. I often wished I could think of an art project that would use the pieces.
I didn't just photograph the damaged trees, I will show the rest of the pictures tomorrow as it is a beautiful park.
