In this Dec. 29, 2012 photo, a leafless tree stands over graves in the Cheniere Caminada cemetery in Grand Isle, La. Many coastal Louisiana cemeteries are just skeletons of what they used to be. The few trees still standing have been killed by saltwater intrusion from the Gulf. Their leafless branches are suspended above marsh grass left brown and soggy from saltwater that has crept up from beneath the graves. (AP Photo/Dave Martin)
