Heavy Snow Could Weaken Young Trees

The April Fools snow storm has painted a landscape of heavy laden trees. Mark Mortenson, Program Forester for the Brainerd office of the DNR, tells KLKS News, young plantings could use a helping hand. He says trees up to 15 feet could be permanently affected by the weight, while the more mature trees should have little trouble.

Because the ground is still frozen under the snow pack, Mortenson expects most of the moisture to run-off into lakes and streams. He says precipitation is running above normal since the first of the year.
