    “…Every year over the last decade and a half, the U.S. Geological Survey has descended on Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks in California to give 17,000 trees a physical.

But this year, that number has grown to 13 per cent…For the past four years, California has been going through a record-setting drought…[A recent study of California’s forests] found that 12 million trees died due to drought this year alone…[No tree, including Giant Sequoias, seems] immune…[A] significant number of older trees that had shrugged off the Dust Bowl in the 1930s were losing as much as half of their leaves…” click here for more
