Trees under threat

blue mountain lake

There were very few pops of bright color on Blue Mountain Lake last week now that we are past peak leaf season. Zach Matson and I were out there last Wednesday listening to the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program’s speakers on invasive species. We are working on stories in our next issue of the magazine about some of the different forest pests and what is being done about them.

In case you missed it, Mike Lynch had a story up online today about beech leaf disease, another kind of threat to trees that was spotted this summer in the southwestern Adirondacks. Read that story here.

    The above images appears to be the view from Castle Rock. The last time I was up there was with my little girl who isn’t so little anymore….just a few years ago. O’ the memories of days gone by!

    Forest pests! The first thing which came to mind….humans!
