“While damage is present with this last storm, it is nowhere near the significant event that happened on October 25, 2020”, said Parks and Recreation director Ken Sherbenou. “That event required a major mobilization of City staff along with additional resources. Thankfully, this storm’s impact on the urban tree canopy is much less substantial. Most downed limbs are of a small, manageable diameter.”
