Don't pick trees solely based on ice storm

-A A +A
By Dennis Morgeson

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.  

There are some that were damaged pretty badly but they still have their place in the landscape.
