Urban Forestry Strike Team Assesses Park Damage KHBS/KHOG 40/29 - Fort Smith,AR,USA
Since the ice storm, the skyline has looked a little different in northwest Arkansas. Tops of trees were destroyed beyond repair, wiping out entire tree canopies. Thousands of trees, especially in the area's most well-known parks, were damaged or destroyed.
A special team of arborists with the Urban Forestry Strike Team was in town Friday to assess the damage. Their first stop was at Fayetteville's Wilson Park.
