No it's hella heatlthy. It's a redwood so it naturally has a redish brownish hue to it. I've seen it be almost entirely brown after some bad winters when it was smaller thought it was a goner. This year it stayed almost entirely green. Best year yet for a tree growing out of its element. (Except when it was small enough to live inside)

I'd imagine the light makes it look worse then it is too. At first I though it was Charlie Brown's Xmas tree.

This is pretty clever. Using humans' natural competitiveness and heuristics to find hidden patterns in microbial DNA. This is the first time I've heard of it being included in a major gaming title.
