The severe winds last week knocked down a lot of trees in the Central Park ramble. Others that were about to fall were sawed down to stumps by the Conservancy staff. There are more fallen limbs than I’ve ever seen, making the Ramble seem even more wild than usual. Although I suspect they’ll slowly be removed, I’d prefer they were left just where they are so that I can document their slow return to the earth.
Here are some close-ups of the fallen.
