cutting down a damaged tree 008

Cleveland Heights suffered a powerful microbust thunderstorm on August 9, 2015. The city spent about $400,000 on emergency response and cleanup, which involved cutting damaged limbs or removing entire trees.


Hardest hit was the Ingelwood Historic District, where I live. This area has more than 2,500 century-old trees, and many of them were heavily damaged. Trees on the boulevard were the responsibility of the city, so the Cleveland Heights Department of Forestry had to respond to these problems.
