The bark beetle is mainly attacking the spruce trees. They make up a big part of the Austrians forests, as the spruce is a fast-growing and economic attractive tree. But the spruce is highly affected by climate change. It can't adapt to the high temperatures and heatwaves and gets, therefore, more vulnerable to pests like the bark beetle. Forest rangers have to keep track of the damage and fell trees as soon as they are infested.
