Frustrating but not surprising....regarding renovation of the extensive damage done to trees in the North Woods section of CP by a severe storm last summer:

A few of many articles on this topic:

Jenny,

The damage the storm did to Central Park had to be depressing. Hopefully they will make the best out of a sad situation.
