Sherry, we had several crews from Missouri working our town over the past week - along with crews from Canada, Arkansas, Georgia, you name it. As of today (8th day), our town is down to 10 percent outage, just in time for a severe northeaster to blow in tomorrow. Everyone is hunkering down for "round 2".


Hello, David. Yes, I'm in Joplin, which is in the Southwest corner of Missouri. There have been many trees replanted, but as you said, there will always be a clear difference between them and the others which survived. Sherry


Pity, bud glad it did not give damage.


Indeed it's not the right way to have it minimized!! Thanks so very much David!


With tornadoes, it's amazing how that path can be traced years afterward by the trees that are "out of sync" with the rest of the street trees. I guess you're in MO, Jojosmom?


It's such a shame that these storms do so much damage to the trees. When we had the EF5 tornado in Joplin in May 2011, it took out every single tree in its path--one third of the city looked as if a giant bulldozer had scraped up everything, including the asphalt of some parking lots! Houses and businesses are going up again, but it will be a very long time before we have mature trees again.


Generally they do much better than the pines. And the pines can't recover from a lost "leader" the way the spruces do (giving them that forked top like yours has).


We have four Norway Spruce to the West of our house, and two white pines to the NE of our house. The first year we lived here the top came out of one of the Norway Spruce and narrowly missed our house. It is an interesting tree to see, now, from upstairs windows, because it has two tops, smaller branches which took over.


This shot shows a very typical loss of the top crown of a White Pine. This tree stands at the "front" of a line of pines and took the brunt of the windforce. The top broke off and (luckily) fell fairly straight down. In some storms in North Carolina I have seen the top half of a pine go flying big distances before coming down to the ground!
