Colorado Springs gallery examines impact of state's aspen decline

Artist De Lane Bredvik hangs 25 foot panels painted with aspen trees in an instillation in the Plaza of the Rockies Friday, June 28, 2013. He hopes the art pieces will bring awareness to Sudden Aspen Decline, a phenomenon where, according to Bredvik, increasing heat and drought cycles have killed off around 20 percent of aspen forests in Colorado.
