CUSTER (AP) - Black Hills National Forest officials say Roubaix Campground will be closed to the public on Tuesday and Wednesday to remove trees invested by mountain pine beetles.

Some 175 bug-killed trees within the boundaries of the campground need to be cut and removed.

Forest spokesman Scott Jacobson says removing the trees is necessary to reduce hazards and provide a safe place to the visitors and campers. The removal also will reduce further spread of the beetles.

Future closure dates may be posted at the campground entrance if the work cannot be finished during the dates shown.

The work will be performed by Boxelder Job Corps fire students and the Forest Service.
