BIG BEAR – (INT) - The invasive goldspotted oak borer (GSOB) has been detected in dying California black oaks in the community of Sugarloaf.

It is the second GSOB infestation identified in San Bernardino County. The first was discovered in the Oak Glen area in 2018. It is also the second GSOB infestation on the San Bernardino National Forest, following the first in Idyllwild in 2012.

The long-range spread of GSOB from its native range in Arizona is attributed to the movement of infested firewood.

The Forest Service says GSOB may already be in other portions of San Bernardino County but haven’t been yet discovered. The non-native beetles aggressively attack California black oaks, coast live oaks and canyon live oaks.

just got a bunch of wood with the bore makings shown on google images. I'll burn it all down the hill, but please people, be on the safe side and don't bring firewood up the hill.

When you’re happy you enjoy the music, when you’re sad you understand the lyrics.

DO NOT bring non-local wood into the area! If you need firewood, get it from a local supplier who uses local wood.

(It hurts to post this, as we had a large tree removed a little over a year ago and now have a bit over a cord of ready to burn wood at our home own the hill.) We will burn it here, we just tend to use the fireplace in Big Bear a great deal more.

Got my property tax bill couple days ago and have to say I'm fairly pissed off. CSD services provided now in no way comparable to before so reduction of services with NO deduction in tax bill. Seems some Americans threw some tea in a harbor for similar BS. Thanks for not nothing CSD

Open letter to BBCSD
Hoping that Big Bear City will enact a new area where those of us who can’t use the new trash bins because of being part-timers and not wanting to leave it out from Sunday to Tuesday for animals to tip can use when we leave to drop off our trash in a safe place. Especially since we are paying for it on our taxes and only use it occasionally Please just a thought. Transfer station put some dumpsters out front for easier drop off or the main office could have some dumpsters for us to use Thanks

Felt bad for the driver. Gotta be the worst! He was doing his best but obviously had never been up 18 and had NO idea how sharp that upper hairpin really is.

Anyone hear anything about the semi stuck on the hairpins this morning? I was a few cars back. Watched the non-thinking person in front of me try to pass a car so she could squeeze through. (no chance!) That car blocked her or it could have been worse!
