thank you Cicadas and trees aren't really enemies, cicadas use their proboscis to feed on plants and trees. and yes they do leave scarring on trees, but nothing that's fatal. this piece is merely celebrating the emergence of a specific type of Cicada that's been dormant for 15 years on my side of the U.S!
