The City Parks Foundation on Monday began planting the first of 70 trees meant to replace those downed by Sandy. Trees are also being planted in Woodside. The Sunnyside Post reports;
“What better way to celebrate Earth Day than planting a tree,” said councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, whose office has kept track of where the downed trees were located.
The Sunnyside/Woodside street that was most devastated by the hurricane was 48th Street between Skillman and 39th Ave. “It lost more trees than any other block,” Van Bramer said. However, “there were pockets of downed trees in all areas of Sunnyside and Woodside.”
Hopefully these new trees will be maintained and pruned, as some have been demanding, so their limbs don’t come crashing down during the next big storm.
