Dead Trees on Lake Michigan’s Left Coast

It’s not unusual to see bare trees in Wisconsin. Distinct seasons of summer, fall, winter, spring make for leafless branches for about half of each year. What is very unusual is seeing so many trees that appear lifeless in August—and they’ve been that way all year. Lots of native ash trees have perished because of the emerald ash borer, a nasty import from China that came with boatloads of Chinese goods. But are all these dead trees ash trees?
