Fire-suppression over the past century has led to increased forest density and fuel accumulation. Increased stand densities and warm dry summers in the past few decades have predisposed dry, high elevation forest types to mountain pine beetle (MPB) outbreaks. MPB outbreaks occur in three successive stages - the green (initial attack), red (visible...
