Acid rain is common throughout the Long Island and New York area. Acid rain is a result of high pollution and air contamination. It is a result of the burning of fossil fuels and waste gases, containing sulfur and nitrogen oxides. Once these gases are introduced into the atmosphere, it then combines with the rain, forming acid rain.
Acid rain negatively affects the environment, especially lakes and forests. Acid rain has subtle effects on forests throughout the New York, Suffolk County, and Nassau County areas. Acid rain weakens the trees’ natural defense systems. This leaves the tree in a vulnerable state, causing it to be more susceptible in contracting diseases or pests. Acid rain has been a main cause for the decline of the Spruce-Fir trees throughout the eastern coast of the United States. Soil and magnesium are common soil nutrients needed to assist in healthy tree growth. Acid rain removes these nutrients from the soil, resulting in the decline of tree reproduction.
