Stanley Park 2007 Wind Storm Damage 03

Description : The gusting winds blew down many large, significant trees throughout the park. More than 41 hectares (100 acres) of the 243 hectares (600 acres) of forested areas of park had virtually been levelled. Thousands of trees were uprooted, snapped in half or knocked down by other trees leaving broad swaths of debris, splintered trunks and upturned rootballs, some dozens of feet high. The storm destabilized the slopes on the west side of the park. Large waves and falling trees resulted in structural damage to large sections of the Seawall. Downed trees blocked most of the park\'s trails making them impassable. Recent assessments suggest that more than 10,000 trees were lost in the storm and the restoration will cost upwards of $9 million dollars.
