The End of Nebraska Evergreens

Evergreens, with their splash of green in drab Nebraska winters, have become the first to die as historic drought and its shadow, climate change, redefine the trees that can survive the Great Plains' extreme weather.
Nearly 700 pines in Lincoln's iconic Pioneers Park have died since July. Other parks across the state are losing trees, too. In neighborhoods, the deaths are more isolated, as first one tree, than another dies.

From the Omaha World-Herald. Details here.
