5/29/09 update: James emailed that the meeting place this Sunday at 3:00pm will be at the forest service land near the end of Haystack Drive, where it turns into Manhead Mountain Dr., ~2 miles in from Gate 10

5/26/09 Forester James White emailed: “I am available on Sunday May 31st at 3:00 PM for a field trip to sharpen our skills in beetle detection. I am asking for recommended areas that have known beetle trees where we can look at mortal and partial hits and possibly look at next years likely candidates. Please e-mail me if you have some recommendations. Thanks, James”

GVM Pine Beetle Spraying $ Info

4/28/09 Email from Susan Lamb to Ecology Committee: “Yesterday I talked with Jeff Smith, owner of Tiger Tree Land Management, to confirm the price of spraying for mountain pine beetle. The price remains the same as last year: $13.19 per tree. There was a conflict in price ($13 vs $11) mentioned at our Ecology meeting last month, so here ’tis straight from the horse’s mouth. This is also the price that Jeff and Steve H. have agreed to for GVM if 500+ trees are sprayed. Just thought we should all be on the same page.

Tiger Tree will start spraying in GVM in a couple of weeks. More information is available at their website: http://www.tigertreeinc.com/.”
