Communications from Committee Members :
Roger Svendsen advised that some RFL property owners are having problems with the mountain pine beetle when they have not had them before. These property owners are losing one-half to three-quarters of their trees. The removal of the slash has been a big problem for the RFL property owners. If one leaves slash piled around and it is still green, that attracts more beetles – the fresh pitch is an attractant. There is a group starting up that is trying to solve this problem for the greater RFL area. This group’s presentation has been added to the agenda.
Eunice Michalka advised that the RFL welcoming program is called Newcomer’s Program and not Welcome Wagon.
Communications from County Representatives :
