The most prevalent thing around here is that the older trees are dying sooner than necessary, like the rest of us. No mystery here; our planet is dying due to mankind’s greed, destruction of the environment, depletion of the natural resources, pollution of the atmosphere and creation of global heating, etc.
So utterly sad, in spite of so much said and written about the state of our planet and our behaviour, most behave as if it does not concern them. It pains me.
So very,very true !
