Tree-liminated path

I knew it was going to happen. The warnings had been in paper, although I doubt that many people saw the small notices.  I had noticed the problem earlier in the year in my own blog. But the scale and the scope was surprising.  Seeing it still hurts. All along my walk path trees have come down. And not just one or two but whole strips of them. Elms taken out by the emerald ash borer or because they were infected.

Habitats lost for the birds and squirrels.

Shade lost for the walkers.

Message posts lost for the dogs

A community changed.  I hope they plant new.
