Top view of trees killed by a bark beetle outbreak near Twisp Pass, North Cascades National Park, Washington. Bark beetle populations have exploded and caused massive devastation throughout the west since the late 1990s. Recent warmer winters have not been sufficiently severe to kill the native beetle and suppress its population growth.
