A mature ponderosa pine lies in the Deschutes National Forest northwest of Sisters where weedkiller is responsible for the death of more than 2,100 trees. The tree was cut down after a hazardous tree removal project last fall.

Dozens of ponderosa trees that are dead or dying line U.S. Highway 20 just west of Sisters on Wednesday, May 2, 2018. The Oregon Department of Transportation applied herbicide to kill brush along the highway from 2013-2015 and accidentally killed the trees in the process. (Ryan Brennecke/Bulletin file photo)
