     Cutting and pruning at this time of year has been reported to be a cause of the spread of the Bark Beetle. SPI's clear cutting is causing widespread exposure to this pest of death it is believed.

   Immune systems are weakened due to the years of drought and cutting, especially clear-cutting causes the spread of this bug. Wait to prune or cut until November if you care about your other pines and cedars.
