Oh the tree-manity


Eugene Volokh usually teaches law and posts to his blog at UCLA, but this semester he's in a strange and alien place far, far away.

I've noticed that the trees around Boston have been losing their leaves, making them look bare and sickly. Seems like some sort of tree disease, though to my surprise there hasn't been that much news coverage of it. Fortunately, my hometown (Los Angeles) seems not to have been infested with this...

I've heard it's spreading down the Eastern seaboard and--wait, it's here in my backyard!
