Dead trees in the Huon

Dead trees in the Huon Valley ... is this normal?
Dead trees in the Huon Valley … is this normal?

Seems to be a lot of dead trees in the Huon Valley, and they are well outside of last year’s burned areas.

They are on north and south facing slopes.

Is this normal? Or from cyclical drought? Or part of a trend related to a drying climate? Borers? Something else?

Or is the Huon joining the long list of regions around the world experiencing tree death, places such as these.

I’ll post up a few more tree pix in due course.
