What is killing the walnut trees in Boulder?
There are a significant number of black walnut trees, dead and/or dying around Boulder. The rapid decline and tree mortality is the result of several different factors; the combination is known as the "Walnut twig beetle/canker complex" - a combination of drought stress, a beetle (Black Walnut Twig Beetle) and a fungus (Fusarium canker fungus).
