Borg’s Woods After the Storm Pictures

I will let these pictures speak for themselves of the March 13th storm devastation in Hackensack’s Borg’s Woods.

Eric Martindale, who helped preserve the preserve stated in the Bergen Record on April 2, 2010 that “Trees blocking major trails should be cleared, but otherwise, fallen trees are characteristic of an old growth forest.  “The trees aren’t blocking the trails. In addition, large fallen trees provide habitat niches for various types of wildlife.”

Hackensack Riverkeeper’s own Capt. Bill Sheehan stated in the April 2, 2010 Bergen Record that “Bugs and other small critters will take care of the trees in good time, and that’s how you replenish the soil of the forest,” Sheehan said. “Things die, they fall down, they biodegrade, and new things grow up. If a tree falls in the woods, it should probably stay there.”

    Wow. I knew Bergen County got hit hard, but I can’t believe that one tree is uprooted.
