Is this an invasive alien species Rick. It is a shocking looking image . We have had this kind of thing here with Dutch Elem disease wiping out the English elm and now our Ash trees are seriously threatened by Ash die back. Disturbing times

It is so sad that this is happening. I saw it all around Yosemite National Park last year. This image really shows the devastation.
