Maine’s Maple Trees at Risk 

This summer’s wet weather is promoting the growth of fungi on maple trees across Maine. In some cases, leaves on maple trees have begun to curl up, turn brown and fall off the trees. But foresters say the good news is the infection won’t cause any long-term damage to the trees. Bill Ostrofsky of the Maine Forest Service says there are two leaf diseases prevalent in the state right now. He says tar leaf spot and anthracnose infections become worse in wet years. (AP)
