We had the same problem with the beetles in East Tennessee, they killed no telling how many thousands of acres of pine forrest. I think they should have learned a leason about converting the hardwood forrst into pine for the pulp wood industry but they are still planting.

Your right about it being good for the deer heard, at least until the pines get bigger and chokes out all the browse. You kind of get a boom and bust with the deer population over about a ten year period.
