Give trees a chance to recover from ice storm

Division of Forestry offers advice about damage

By Linda Ireland

When I was a little girl, I attended Pleasant Grove Baptist Church with my mom and brother.

One year, an ice storm damaged some branches on the two big sycamore trees at the edge of the cemetery. I recall some discussion among the church members whether to cut the trees down – as they were advised by an expert – or to trim the damaged branches and give the trees a second chance.

Being a bit of a tree-hugger back then, I was glad when the adults decided to do the only wise thing by giving the trees a chance to recover.
