Thus is quite alarming as forests are dying. This should caution anyone transporting trees anywhere.

‘Mountainsides dying’
Forestry officials and scientists are increasingly alarmed, and say the essential role of trees – providing clean water, locking up carbon and sheltering whole ecosystems – is being undermined on a grand scale.

I can't vote in the US, but if I could, I'd vote for anyone who would promiss to build a wall to prevent the country from invasions and their consequences.

At the expense of the insects and pathogens, of course.

Yeah. It's a crying shame. All those trees that could be cut down to make wood products are just going to waste from bugs and disease. Standing dead trees do make for the best firewood to heat houses though.
