Tweedsmuir Provincial Park

The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctorus ponderosae, isn’t much bigger than the head of a pin, but the voracious pest is laying waste to vast swaths of interior B.C. forest—from Prince George in the northern part of the province to 200 kilometres west, into beautiful Tweedsmuir, the province’s largest park and one of the epidemic’s origins.
