A lot of forests in your part of the country are a bit past their prime, too many well meaning pseudoenvironmentalists who would rather see a forest die of bugs, disease and fire than let anyone manage and thin the forest to keep it healthy.

We see that in the historic disctict of Charlotte with big rain storms - the century old massive tree balls/roots just can't keep hold when the ground is full of water. The law of physics takes over and the weight of the 40+ foot trees topples the right over.

I don't know that the number of tree casualties is increasing though, Nathan!

Yes.  Out here we've had a bug and a disease killing lots of trees.  A beetle is a big culprit out here.  Took out a plum tree of mine.  Pine trees are dying all over from the alleged drought and the cutting back on watering.
