dead fir trees

Asked September 27, 2015, 11:23 PM EDT

Do you know why many fir trees are dying here in Douglas county? We live out Cole Road and I counted 32 trees that are dead or dying from my house to town. Is it the lack of rain?

Hello, Yes, we feel that the Douglas-fir losses are associated with the epic drought we've had. We have seen dead tops, dead branches, dead trees all over the I-5 corridor, especially in the areas where oak can grow. http://blogs.oregonstate.edu/treetopics/2015/09/02/summer-2015-drought-and-heat-a-forest-health-report/http://
