Where Are There Downed, Leaning Trees?

While many trees knocked down by Sandy were removed, many remain. Let us know where.

In the immediate aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, toppled trees blocked roadways, tore out wires, crushed cars and even damaged homes in the Smithtown area. In the weeks that followed, tree removal companies and the town's highway department worked around the clock to clear the area.

But the sheer number of downed trees has left many felled, cracked or leaning trees untouched in town, many in places where they are not in danger of causing property damage.

We'd like to know where these are. We've posted a picture above taken of a large tree next to the St. James Lutheran Church as an example.

Let us know about other trees in the comment box below. And if you can, take photo and upload it to gallery above by hitting the big "Contribute" button. Add the location in the caption and we'll use these to create a map.

There are large trees that keep dropping more onto a light pole on Mayfair Court. The trees are part of the lower armory park woods

5 Bridle Path Road, Smithtown has 2 very tall trees leaning all the way across the street, will hit wires and a pole when they fall--and possibly a car or pedestrian who goes past at the wrong time!

The picture of the tree above has a sign on it from some clown offering services for stump removal. If was a good guy he would offer his services to the church to remove the tree and stump for free or next to nothing. Could be worse, that painting guy who will remain unnamed could have posted a sign there too!
