Mass. Deals With Destruction Left By Nor’easter

It was easier for Zach Kunow to catch a big brown trout Monday (March 12) afternoon than it was to drive down the road to the landing on Cliff Pond in Mass.’s Nickerson State Park.

“This is pretty bad with all these trees down,” said Kunow, glancing up from his fish at dozens of large pines that had collapsed all around this popular fishing spot, according to the Cape Cod Times.

Park staff had been able to cut a route through the massive fallen timber to allow access to Fishermen’s Landing after winds from last week’s nor’easter caused significant tree damage in the park, uprooting over 149 trees, according to park superintendent Eric Levy.

Over 200 trees were felled between the January and March nor’easters, according to state Department of Conservation and Recreation spokesman Troy Wall.
