90% of trees battered by Buffalo storm

All I can say is Ouch

A preliminary estimate has found that roughly 90 percent of the 5,700 trees in Delaware Park and its three nearby parkways were damaged.

Buffalo is a leafy city with huge Victorian neighborhoods and a beautiful parks system. They’re estimating the tree damage could take generations to repair. The good news is 85 to 90 percent of these trees are salvageable—just minus many branches.

Another Buffalo quote from the same article…

One Town of Tonawanda official said that except for the snow, the town would appear to have been hit by a hurricane. Holifield had a different take: “I’m a Midwestern guy. It looks like a tornado came through, not a snowstorm.”
