DYING BRANCHES IN A RED
photo by Gerry Hawkes ~ September 2001~ in New York's Adirondack Park
Dead, reddish brown needles on a few limbs is one of the first visible signs that this red spruce tree is likely to decline and die as other nearby trees already have (see photo).
Hemlock are also starting to show similar dying and browning of needles on individual limbs. (see photo)
