Compounding stressors. There was Winter Moth pressure for years on end. Then came the cycle of Gypsy Moth, which emerge and feed after the trees are trying to recover from the Winter Moth defoliation.

The trees with enough left to make another push after double defoliation were met with drought conditions.

It was just a perfect storm of pests and climate. Most have shed their bark by now, and many are beginning to fall over now that the root systems are gone. It’s a rather heart breaking mess.

cutting down dead ash trees is one thing, but big dead oaks...
