Squared Trees in California — #3

Southeastern inland: Mammoth Mountain Dead Forest … where the CO2 gas seeped up from below to kill the trees. Posted warnings tell parents and pet owners to keep little ones away. (See https://pubs.usgs.gov/dds/dds-81/Intro/facts-sheet/GasKillingTrees.html)

“And the remaining trees of his forests will be so few that a child could write them down”

    • Hi Becky, yes, it is a scary sight. As you suspect, the CO2 gas comes from all the quake fissures and the volcano below. Signs tell people not to let small animals or kids roam around because the heavy gas is worse near the ground.
