950,000 trees could succumb due to this year’s flooding along the Missouri River

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources stated on September 20, 2011 that 950,000 trees could eventually succumb, due to oxygen deprivation of their root systems during this year’s flooding along the Missouri River, with soil erosion from the loss of the trees also increasing vulnerability to future floods.
