Rapid City pine beetle trees being removed

Under the city of Rapid City's program to remove trees invested by the mountain pine beetle, more than 1,000 trees have been taken down.

About one in four trees checked by surveyors for mountain pine beetles in Rapid City are infested, KOTA TV reports.

They've removed 1,222 of those, with an average reimbursement of $162 each.
