All the snow over the past couple days has been rough on our city’s trees. But perhaps the worst of it is that Van Dusen Gardens, a 22-hectare botanical garden in the heart of Vancouver, has suffered extensive damage. The Garden is reporting damage to over three dozen species of tree, both native and exotic.
The Garden has been forced to close for the week due to clean up efforts. Their annual Festival of Lights has also been delayed until December 15.

How very sad. I hope that they are able to revive the trees.
PS Did you see the tree story on my blog – the story of the swing never swung?
I did. :(
It is so sad when trees suffer. I think we all feel their pain.
