Queens residents replant Sandy-damaged trees for Earth Day
On Earth Day, some tree-filled streets wrecked by Hurricane Sandy were finally being restored.
Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer and City Parks Foundation workers, along with local students, were replanting trees Monday in Queens.
About 70 trees will be planted in Sunnyside and Woodside this spring, replacing many that were uprooted or damaged in Hurricane Sandy.
The Greening Western Queens Initiative located trees that were damaged and killed, and planned how to replace them.
