SATURDAY, 11:09 am: Tree Watch: Are You Keeping an Eye Out?

I'm prepared for the storm, but I'm not sure I can do anything to help this giant old oak.

The tree took a beating during last year's tornado.  As almost every other fell around it, this tree managed to stay standing — stripped of its leaves and a few branches, wounded but not defeated.  And it made a remarkable recovery: we spotted little green acorns just this week.

It has faithfully protected us from the din of Flatbush Avenue. But tomorrow, it could be a serious liability.  Hope not.

Is there a tree you're keeping an eye on? Let us know in the comments below:
