As expected, I had several people ask me what was the best tree species to plant in place of the ones being cut down and they want ones that will survive the next ice storm. Well, the answer is, there isn’t one. All tree species sustained damage, however, some worse than others. For instance, “Bradford” pear was destroyed and it’s a no-brainer to not plant them again, because they also fail in high winds pretty regularly.
