A one-two punch of dwarf mistletoe disease and bark beetles have threatened thousands of acres of trees in the Boise National Forest.
Every year, dwarf mistletoe and bark beetles attack trees at Bogus Basin from the ground up.
"Typically they'll kill three to 10 trees at a time," said Stephaney Kerley with the Forest Service. "What we're seeing right now is bark beetles are killing pockets of 50 to 100 trees at a time."
It's an epidemic that will change the face of Bogus Basin forever.
