The LA Times describes this California tree mass-die-off as incendiary:

Rangers in the San Bernardino National Forest call them “red trees.” The situation is incendiary,” William Patzert, a climatologist for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, told The Times recently. “The national forest is stressed out.”[/quote_box_center]
