Wyoming Public Radio’s Irina Zhorov reports.

in her latest story for wyoming public radio, nonfiction mfa’er irina zhorov examines how and why beetle kill in the region is still no bueno:

“Millions of acres of timber are dying off due to the bark beetle. Entrepreneurs are attempting to make the best of the decimation. But, despite efforts by the Forest Service to make the logs accessible, there are many factors that make things difficult for these fledgling businesses. Startup loans are hard to come by, the infrastructure is missing, competition is grave, and no one seems to be buying. Irina Zhorov reports that, with four million acres of beetle kill in the region, these business’ success or failures could make the difference in whether the timber is wasted or not.”
