Tropical trees maintain high carbon accumulation rates into old age, according to a study published August 16, 2017 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Michael Köhl from the Universität Hamburg, Germany, and colleagues.
It will take two years to clear the tens of thousands of trees smashed by the weekend storms that devastated Poland's forests, the country's forest service said Wednesday. "We're dealing with what is undoubtedly the worst disaster in the history of Polish -- and perhaps even European
Urban Forestry budget always gets cut before all others. Hopefully they have a decent tree inventory that logs anything that was done to it.
The decay at the base and trunk is obvious. This is a case of negligence on my part. There was a similar scene in Central Park a dozen years ago. The tree had fallen on a mother sitting on a bench with her child. Unfortunately, the child had not survived. This accident occurred after Bloomberg cut the budget for tree maintenance from $ 11 to $ 5 million per year. This is what happens when you try to save money instead of ensuring the safety of the citizen. The tree fell today was not hidden in the bottom of the park but along the paths and the road. At this size and location, this tree should have been inspected and felled for a long time. Presumably, one will have neglected his inspection and here are the tragic consequences. Let us hope that this poor mother and her children get along without too many sequels.
Thats a very unhappy situation, so now trees will be banned in the us
They don't have an arborist to inspect for tree failure
Hmm. Can someone say root decay.
Yep, the nigh unseen danger of root decay.
May be root rot.
hell with all th race crap th tree must have been racist
Time to head to Colorado to start cutting ash trees like we had to in Michigan
You should see em up here in southern Ontario Canada.... Completely taken over the ash up here. From Winsor to Toronto pushing east hard and fast. Sure does create a lot of work but it's sad watching canopies disappear throughout neighbourhoods.
Eric Ringer when are we heading out there?
Kevin McIntyre let's go make millions
Damn. I hate that it's going to destroy the Denver canopy here. Go away.
We treat the ash trees in Kingston from the emerald ash boar. But it's expensive, most people just want them cut down.
Ash is a doomed species , we are taking em down all over Pa. , most people can't afford any type of treatment to save any trees !!!
TRY to treat and save would be the proper statement.... I see treated ash devistated by the ash borer all the time.... If anything we are just postponing the devistation.
