USDA Undersecretary Admits Wyoming's Problem With Bark Beetles Is A Significant One

Governor Dave Freudenthal and USDA Undersecretary for Natural Resources and Environment Harris Sherman met with county officials and toured bark beetle-ravaged forests in western Wyoming this week. Sherman says that it's apparent that the problem in Wyoming is a significant one.

Freudenthal stated that the problem in Wyoming is every bit as serious as the one in Colorado, which is where Undersecretary Harris is from.

Freudenthal hosted the Undersecretary during a flyover of both the Bridger-Teton and Shoshone National Forests and introduced Sherman to Park and Lincoln County Commissioners, who had a chance to communicate their concerns directly to the Undersecretary.
