    Superstorm Sandy: Realizations, Recovery and Replanting

    Summary

    This presentation will begin by exploring the overall impact that Superstorm Sandy had on tree resources in the greater New York, New Jersey and Connecticut area, highlighting tree losses that occurred in a historical CCC plantation, the NYC Botanical Gardens, New York City’s Central Park, the Bartlett Arboretum and NJ’s coastal communities.  It will then move into some unique ways that people prepared for the storm or are dealing with the aftermath of it, including stories about the preparation of the Rockefeller Center Holiday Tree, the use of discarded Christmas trees for dune stabilization, the re-establishment of maritime forests as natural buffers and new thoughts on where and what type of tree to replant.  The presentation will end with an overview of what some communities and states are doing to minimize future damage, including infrastructure hardening, legislation and trees on private property.
