Winter Ice Injury  - In cold climates, winter ice injury can cause serious injuries.  The same three part program given for hurricane injury should be done for ice-injured trees.  In forests, the ice-injured trees add much needed carbon as cellulose for soil organisms.  Forest practices during the last several decades have removed so much cellulose that we (tree biologist) believe soil organisms are starving. 

See "Ice - Injury".

Remember!  There are many benefits of CWD for a forest.
