Red forest appeared in Fukushima
Like in Chernobyl, red forest appeared in in Fukushima.
The Red Forest (Ukrainian: Рудий ліс, Russian: Рыжий лес), formerly the Worm Wood Forest, refers to the trees in the 10 km² surrounding the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The name ‘Red Forest’ comes from the ginger-brown colour of the pine trees after they died following the absorption of high levels of radiation from the Chernobyl accident on April 26, 1986. In the post-disaster cleanup operations, the Red Forest was bulldozed and buried in ‘waste graveyards’. The site of the Red Forest remains one of the most contaminated areas in the world today.

A Fukushima citizen found it to say,,
I’ve been here for 30 years, but I haven’t seen a pine tree withering.
1 of 15 trees are dead.
Before 311, sparrows were tweeting every morning.
Everything has changed.
There is no even ant.
From 311 to April, Korean houttuynia withered too.
It was the first time in my life to see growing Korean houttuynia totally died.
