Dead Trees - Update

Dead Trees - Sierra Nevada  2017

Dead Trees - Sierra Nevada  2017

This is a follow-up to last year's Dead Trees post.

Most of the trees have lost some, or all, of their needles. This is making the problem less conspicuous as they are starting to resemble the snags left after a fire. Certainly they are going to provide fuel for future forest fires.

I have heard an unconfirmed report that, over time, the pines will possibly be replaced by cedars. Will have to keep an eye on that.
