Massive forest death continues in California

California’s long-term drought has claimed another 36 million trees, the U.S. Forest Service said, announcing the results of a new aerial survey. Since 2010, more than 100 million trees have died across 7.7 million acres, the agency said.

The die-off intensified in 2016, after four years of drought,  with mortality increasing 100 percent. Millions of additional trees are weakened and expected to die in the coming months and years. Forest Service leaders once again emphasized that their ability to address safety issues linked with dead trees has been severely hampered by climate change and limited resources.

    I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours today, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It?¦s lovely worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet can be much more helpful than ever before.
