A Brightly Colored Invasive Bug Is Threatening Trees Across Maine And This Is What We Know
When thinking about Maine, a lot of people imagine our rocky coastline and beaches. While this is certainly a big part of what makes this state so special, it’s not the only outdoor area that’s worth seeing. The forested areas are just as wonderful and we often feel lucky to have so much access to it. In fact, we don’t even need to venture into the woods to enjoy the woods and trees. In most places, we’re surrounded by them. But this season experts have seen an invasive species take over one type of tree and it’s threatening to hurt livelihoods and the state’s beauty.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
