Photo from Staten Island’s Greenbelt (photos from spring 2012)
Many trees in the Greenbelt fell after Hurricane Sandy, but mostly very old trees. After these are cleared out, new trees will grow in their place, and a renewal will take place. This seems like how nature works to recycle the old into the new and keep things going. What bothers me is all the squirrels and birds that lived in those fallen trees. I hope they weren’t hurt and will find new homes. There are also deer that live in the Greenbelt area. I hope they all survived okay.
