Aging America Trees and Medical Fees
In this Oct. 24, 2013 photo, are the remains of a diseased tree showing how rot begins from the inside on Paul Nys' land in Rainier, Ore. Nys tries to only cut dead and dying trees on his land, as he and a dozen other timber-lot owners are hoping to help cover their medical expenses by selling carbon credits generated by their forest land.
