|More than a dozen dead and dying trees poisoned by the flood waters and choking sand from hurricane Sandy were cut down at the Ocean Parkway entrance to the boardwalk.|
|Tree trimmng trucks arrived early Saturday morning and when they were gone the carnage was complete. Only the stumps of more than 15 trees remained.|
|A sad and desolate reminder that Sandy's destruction will be with us for a long time. |
All trees gone.
|It's not only in the summer that I will miss the trees that framed the boardwalk and the open sky.|
