Japanese Garden

Anyone want to help us clean up the Japanese Gardens? This Saturday volunteers will be at the Japanese Garden from 9am to 2pm. If you'd like to stop by and lend a hand, we need it! You don't have to work the whole time, just as much as you're able.

Lots of damage from the storm, we need to clean it out before winter arrives. Workers from Olmsted Conservancy will be there for the heavy lifting. If you come bring work gloves and hand tools (saws, rakes, etc) if you have them, but no power tools.

Tree Damage - Links

I've heard we might lose up to 50% of the trees in Buffalo. The last couple days I was optimistic things would be better, but doing research it looks like many of the trees that look relatively unscathed will be goners. If the top was broken off, they'll likely come down even if otherwise they still look to be in good condition. Almost all the newer trees along Elmwood have damage to their top trunk.

Branches that break off from inside the main trunk instead of splitting off just outside of it are also killers. If you've got a damaged tree, and don't prune it correctly this season, it will be too late next year.

Here are some links to information on nursing trees back to health, and please add more info if you've got it.
