October Snowstorm Inflicts Serious Tree Damage On Park

Morristown National Historical Park

National Park News

Park staff continue to remove hundreds of downed trees, limbs and large tree branches throughout the park following the record-breaking snowstorm that hit the Northeast on Saturday, October 29th. The effects of the unusual fall snowstorm, with its very wet, heavy snow, were compounded by the fact that many leaves still remained on the trees in the mostly-wooded park. Since Sunday, crews have been working to restore the park to normal operations. Roads, over 27 miles of hiking trails, and developed grounds were all littered with trees. Electricians from Gateway will assist Morristown later this week in restoring downed lines for a critical housing generator at the Cross Estate section of the park.
