Default Pine beatles

About 5-7 yrs ago pine beatles come through north Ga well about all of Ga killing most every pine tree bigger than your wrist, a couple yrs ago the forest service started doing controlled burns to clean up the mess of all the dead rotting trees. Which really has healped with the ground level foliage but now its getting so thick that seeing anything will be hard till the leaves fall off. But I still think its going to be a good year because the deer have alot of fresh tender growth to eat all summer. Has any other states been hit hard like Ga, we also got an aphid killing all our hemlock trees which is hurting our mt. trout streams.
