Lincoln, Neb. (November 5, 2012) – As communities affected by Hurricane Sandy transition from emergency response to long-term recovery, homeowners and civic leaders must properly assess damage to trees and provide needed care.

While hazardous trees ought to be pruned or removed by professionals, it is important to avoid snap judgments. Acting too quickly can jeopardize the enormous benefits urban forests bring to the environment and quality-of-life.

The Arbor Day Foundation offers counsel on these and other considerations through our Storm Recovery Kit. The kit contains both written materials and videos, and the Foundation will also send broadcast-quality DVDs upon request. The five ready-made segments can be aired "as is" and are an ideal fit for local news or public access television.

The Foundation's continued focus is on helping municipalities, utility providers and residents with resources to effectively manage and care for trees, both to recover from this disaster and be prepared for the next one.

The materials can be accessed at, and direct links to the videos are available on the Foundation's YouTube account.

State and community leaders and the media can contact the Foundation directly at the information above to request DVDs.

About the Arbor Day Foundation: The Arbor Day Foundation is a nonprofit conservation and education organization of one million members, with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees. More information on the Foundation and its programs can be found at, or by visiting us on Facebook, Twitter or our blog.
