Aspen Die-Off

Researchers at Stanford and the University of Utah say they may have found the cause of a wide-spread apen die-off.  Nearly one fifth of Colorado's aspen have died from something called Sudden Aspen Decline, and The Denver Post says the research points to a Colorado drought between 2000 and 2004.  The trees have essentially dehydrated and the deaths are a delayed reaction to the drought.
