Hurricanes and Trees, Yikes
Did Hurricane Irma leave you with fallen trees, broken branches, or uprooted trees? The University of Florida /Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) created the Urban Forest Hurricane Recovery Program after the devastation of the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons. The main goal of the program is to foster a healthy urban forest that is more wind-resistant. The program is aimed at citizens and communities who seek to rebuild and set better management practices so that future storms are less devastating.
