The missing trees

Our region was hit with at least one if not two infestations that targeted the local trees. The biggest culprit was the emerald ash borer, and with a lot of ash trees around, a lot of damage was done. The city tagged all the heavily damaged trees with spray painted R and were slowly removing them and replanting other species. But with the ice storm and other winter damage, a lot of these dying trees broke apart, and as the city already had crews out trimming other damaged trees, they went around and reduced many of the diseased trees to just their trunks.
