Hail Damage

July 30, 2018

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
Last week, I was between Callicoon Center & Roscoe, Sullivan County & noticed the remnants of a massive (isolated) hail storm that occurred back in June. Leaves had been completely shredded and lots of insurance claims from property damage too. These same trees are struggling to re-leaf. I’ve never seen this kind of hail damage on trees yet. However, it seemed to be an extremely small area, but bad for those in it.

 

May the forest be with you,
