Aspen Eyes

Deep in the Taylor Canyon near Crested Butte, Colorado, aspens keep watch over a landscape in change. As springs and summers have become warmer, aspen have become less drought tolerant. The resulting large-scale dieback of aspen forests has become known as Sudden Aspen Decline (SAD). In two national forests, the more susceptible lower-elevation areas were found to have lost 90% of their aspen over a period of just seven years.
