Arborist says tree damage is hard to avoid
By Matt Sepic, KWMU
St. Louis – As linemen restore electricity to the area house by house and block by block St. Louisans are also cleaning up thousands of fallen and damaged trees.
Many are wondering how or if such a mess could be prevented in the future.
KWMUs Matt Sepic went to the Missouri Botanical Garden to talk trees with arborist Ben Chu.
Chu says even though the garden's own trees are well maintained, they didn't fare much better than many others.
