    > PRAGUE – Czech forest owners face 40 billion crowns of damage this year from an escalating spread of bark beetle that are killing the central European country's most common conifer trees, an industry think-tank said on Monday.

    > Altogether, 450 million cubic metres of spruce timber was under direct threat of the bark beetle infestation, Czech Forest reported.

    > Authorities across the region have responded with aid to forest owners as well as a focus on replanting spruce monocultures with a more varied and thus more resilient forest including a larger share of slower-growing leafy trees.
