Nearly 60% of Middle Park is covered by Coniferous and Deciduous forests. Furthermore, the lodgepole forests of Middle Park have been plagued with the Mountain Pine Beetle epidemic. As a result, the majority of our mature lodgepole pine stands are now dead. Promoting post-beetle kill forest restoration and management is now critical. Middle Park Conservation District strives to promote forest health and wildfire mitigation.
