The ice storm of 2009 will go down as one of the worst, if not the worst on record. With that said, soon if not already, electricity will be restored, water will be restored, clean-up will begin, and we will go about our lives as if nothing happened. However, there is still a nagging long term problem, trees! The scars from this storm are going to be troubling us for years. We will be cutting down and pruning up trees of all sizes and ages. This is only going to cause problems down the road.
