    softwood wars irony - a new front opens - pine beetle to cross border and head towards Bush's ranch
    Pine beetles march on, despite rigorous effort - By MARK HUME, The Globe and Mail
    Some researchers warn that the pine beetle could spread through Canada's boreal forest and across North America.

    'If mountain pine beetle is successful in colonizing jack pine, there is a continuous connection of suitable host species across the boreal forest, down the East Coast of the United States all the way to Texas. What we are describing here is a potential biogeographic event of continental scale with unknown, but potentially devastating, ecological consequences,' researchers Jesse Logan, of the U.S. Forest Service, and James Powell, of Utah State University, said in a recent paper.
