Helping Trees Recover from the Ice Storm (Jan 30, 2008)
The city of Norman said last week that it's about 40% complete with its debris removal efforts in the aftermath of last month's ice storm. Anyone who's driven recently on the side streets around our station and near the University of Oklahoma campus has witnessed that this place that's been designated "Tree City USA" by the National Arbor Day Foundation has now become a city of dead trees, with large piles of limbs and branches piled along all the curbsides. Left behind are the trees still living but badly damaged and trying desperately to recover. We speak to Veronica Keithley, a forester at Cross Timbers, a forestry consulting firm in Tecumseh about how to assess the damage and when to call in the experts.
