Tree disease being ignored by Oregon media

Something weird is going on, but the local media are ignoring it.

I think there is some weird sickness infecting trees all over Salem and throughout the Willamette Valley. So, I'm turning to the blogosphere for answers.

What could possibly cause the leaves of trees to change from vibrant green to brilliant red and then die and fall to the ground? It's happening all over the place. On some trees, the leaves are turning a golden color. And the ground is starting to become littered with dead foliage.

And it's getting damn cold at night too! What's that all about?

Gone are the 80-degree days, and yet people keep commenting about the weather and professing their affection for "fall."

Someone really needs to look into this. I think there is a grand conspiracy out there to kill off trees in the Willamette Valley or some highly contagious arbor disease going around.

Well, you know what they say, "If you can't beat them, join them." I say, go shopping, get a fall wardrobe.Embrace the change of seasons. Look for photo oppurtunities in nature.

I don't know if you ever did this or not, but I loved raking leaves into a pile as a kid and jumping on them. The sites and smells of fall are wonderful. To me it is the most romantic time of the year.

If you are cold, find a beautiful woman to share a down comforter with on a cold night!
