Re: More demons of ignorance, arrogance, and darkness

Yes, there are a lot of Cornus florida in New York, but they fall into the
"exploitably vulnerable" category.  They suffered a severe setback in the 
late '70s when they were under severe attack from a blight.  I know we 
lost around 20 in our yard, but some have survived - developed a kind
of resistance, I guess.  However, every time we have a drought summer
as we have had all too often in the last decade, more disappear in the
woods.  I can remember when the hills were white with them, and now
you don't see that many wild ones.

I'm surprised that Cornus florida is on a Protected Plant List, though. Has 
something changed in the environment to cause problems? I remember hundreds 
of them when we used to travel along the river or up the Thruway.
