The Cobble Hill Association reports (via the Cobble Hill Tree Fund) that many trees in the neighborhood sustained significant damage in Hurricane Sandy:
CHA: They have have found that seven trees were either uprooted or severely damaged beyond saving. Another seven trees were severely damaged, and their fate is still to be determined. Additionally, another eight trees were moderately damaged. It’s clear that a substantial number of trees will need replacing. As it happened, they were already doing a Fall tree planting when the storms hit. Fortunately they were able to replace one of the trees that had been uprooted at 240-242 Baltic Street, and hope to replace several additional trees over the coming year.
The CHA asks its members to notify them if their local tree needs pruning or replacing. The Cobble Hill Tree Fund has funds available to help and is in the process of raising more.
