Today l went to the ribbon cutting for the new rivertrail path down to Marietta. It winds down the shoreline for a few miles and includes a new bridge over a small stream. Hopefully, more connections will be made soon.
That's sort of what I thought of with this alien like growth on my poor birch tree. Orangish bulbs and an orange powder that gets on you when you touch it. My arborist tells me it is cedar apple rust due to a nearby junior tree.
