What about the hickory trees?


To the Editor:

Has anyone noticed that most of the hickory trees around the Tashmoo Overlook off State Road are being defoliated? In the last 10 days, as we were here moving into our house in Vineyard Haven, it has seemed more and more noticeable and alarming, as it just seems to be happening to that species. I also noticed a very large one on Main Street in Vineyard Haven, right by Owen Park, becoming defoliated as well. Sure would like to know why this is happening? Very concerned.
