GILLETTE, Wyo. — City officials in Gillette say they're just now finding out that a severe snowstorm last October severely damaged several more trees than they'd originally thought.
Ten cottonwood trees will be cut down in one park.
The city is preparing to plant two new trees for each one cut down. Even after the trees are cut down, the park will still have around 100 trees still standing.
Much of the tree damage caused by a blizzard that hit northeast Wyoming and western South Dakota last fall didn't become evident until trees began leafing out this spring.
