    Anyone's trees damaged in this winter's storms?

    Just curious, I lost a couple inch thick limbs off the ash and maple trees but probably not because of the heavy wet snow. It was about the unusual for the 25 to 40 mph winds the weather man said we had.

    Bradford Pears or look-a-like cultivars a few miles west of my house suffered. I noticed three or four which seemed to have lost about a third of their branches. Its amazing how well these trees recover to keep growing even if they don't regain their typically "perfect" shape.

    RE: Anyone's trees damaged in this winter's storms?

    We've got some rain here and there for the last three days, but no snow yet (and we're in the mountains, or on the edge of them, anywho...)

    Just got our Fall Tree Store order in the ground on Thursday - had to take a break for some lightning to pass by - I know this year's batch has a lot of nice, gentle rain to start them off! It's actually been unseasonably warm lately. I wore a t-shirt most of the time we were planting, only needed my jacket when the rain got a bit heavier.

    Today, it's a bit cooler, and it seems like we might see some snow. Hopefully, if whatever you had blows this way it will mellow a bit first.
    Cheers,
    Everett

    Every now and then it's nice to have a reminder of why I'm down here!
    See if wasn't a tropical storm, it would be something else.

    If you live in area affected by storm damage you need to know about these three interesting internet tools designed to help property owners care for their damaged trees.

    1. Arbor Day's Online Storm Recovery Kit:

    http://www.arborday.org/media/stormindex.cfm

    This section of The National Arbor Day Foundation website contains articles and artwork about how communities and individuals can save damaged trees after violent storms. Call up your local media and make sure they share this information with your entire community.

    2. Trees After the Storm

    http://www.treesafterthestorm.org/

    3. The Right Tree In The Right Place

    http://www.righttreerightplace.com

    Following a major ice storm that devastated trees in 2002, ten organizations in Kansas City formed a coalition to help educate residents on replanting trees in the proper place. Made up of public and private companies, the coalition received over $100,000 worth of in-kind support to create and promote a web site.
