Scores of mature trees, on both sides of Ott Street, were blown over by Hurricane Sandy. A dozen or so trees around Muhlenberg Lake were lost. Mostly spruce and willow, the 75 year old trees with their large mass and shallow root systems, fell like bowling pins to the sustained wind. Another dozen or so were also lost on the rose garden side of the park. Shown above, one fallen tree destroyed the walk bridge, just west of the garden. Please join me, and donate for new trees to be planted this coming spring.
