Trees

I had a wonderful vacation in Mass. last week. I did find the number of dead, or apparently dead, trees appalling. All along Rt. 128 and the Mass Pike it seems all the birch trees have died. Many of the evergreens are dead or very distressed.

I thought this might be the effect of acid rain. I was told that it was due to the severe winter and late spring. Very disturbing. I hope it was the weather, which might be a one-time thing. Acid rain would continue until we change our ways. Any folks up there able to give the real info on this devastation?
