Following an ice storm many people are concerned about the damage sustained and potential loss of trees.  Once power has been restored and safety issues resolved, home and landowners should consider basic steps to make sure their trees and forested lands will have the greatest chance to recover from damage.  

The following series of bulletins from Oklahoma Forestry Services and the National Arbor Day Foundation have been designed to give basic information to consider in helping your trees recover. Homeowners with specific questions about landscape trees may also go to Trees After The Storm for additional information.  For information on how Oklahoma Forestry Services can assist your community's recovery from an ice storm click here.
