Spruce Budworm - The most destructive and widely distributed forest defoliator in the Western USA... and the Yonderosa. Douglas fir is the preferred host but they were present on Larch, Ponderosa Pine, and Engleman Spruce too. I saw Pine Siskins feeding on them. I suspect the damage they do this year will be evident for years to come.
This is the realization of a shared dream. The challenges my wife and I have overcome, our partnership and the surrounding natural beauty make the achievement even sweeter. We know we are Blessed. Life is Good!
