Death of the Sierra de Baza

These trees in the sierra de baza are filling the landscape with colours of autumn. However, these are not deciduous trees, they are dead and dying pines. More than a million trees have been weakened by drought and affected by boring insects. this is the worst ecological disaster to have affected the province of Granada, Spain, in the last century. These pines were planted in the 1950's/1960's to conserve the arid landscape from increasing desertification.
