Biologist: Climate change spells grim fate for Colo.’s favorite trees
Evolutionary biologist Connie Barlow predicts climate change could devastate Colorado’s trees before the end of the century. In 2012, Steve Colburn of Laser Technology Inc. measured the ponderosa pine named “Faye Schrater.” About 175 years old, the tree, which stands adjacent to the Hermosa Creek Trail, is more than 160 feet tall with a girth of at least 9.5 feet. The tree is believed to be the tallest of its species in the Rocky Mountains.
