What's wrong with this picture? If you are thinking, "Hey Don, you are using a dead tree as a foreground element," you would be correct. Conifers and hardwoods (Junipers and Pinyon Pines) are dying at an alarming rate in the central through southern portion of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. In my new blog: Our Dying Forests I present the reasons behind what is happening. My research also turned up some alarming facts about the current state of our forests.
