Spring : Spring 11 : Arboretum Damage

The windstorm that savaged Mud Lake also left its mark on the Arboretum. An Arboretum is a collection of trees, not a forest. Losing a tree means losing a representative species which will take years to replace.

It is like this all around the valley these days. Trees down everywhere and the people who dispose of them are so busy they can't get them dealt with before the next windstorm knocks more down. Trees are getting old too. So sad to see the big ones over with the great clods of earth pulled right out of the ground.

I know it's Nature and life and death but it is still sad to see great trees down.
