Geographic Range

Dentroctonus ponderosae (the mountain pine beetle) inhabits a large portion of western North America. This species ranges from British Columbia in the north to northern Mexico in the south, as well as from North Dakota west to the Pacific coast. Since D. ponderosae infests Pinus ponderosa, as well as other trees in the genus Pinus, the range of the mountain pine beetle is mostly coincident with that of forests containing these trees.
