It could be pine beetles or it is white pine blister rust. This fungus is responsible for killing whitebarks all over the west and when combined with the pine beetle it looks like it is likely there will be very few white barks left at some point. Here's a pretty good webpage about it:http://www.whitebarkfound.org/threats.html
